Paris, 1967. Disillusioned by their suburban lifestyles, a group of middle-class students, led by Guillaume (Jean-Pierre Léaud) and Veronique (Anne Wiazemsky), form a small Maoist cell and plan to change the world by any means necessary. After studying the growth of communism in China, the students decide they must use terrorism and violence to ignite their own revolution. Director Jean-Luc Godard, whose advocacy of Maoism bordered on intoxication, infuriated many traditionalist critics with this swiftly paced satire.


“Godard’s revolutionary period suddenly seems more relevant than ever, and still just as risky.”

- –– Kate Erbland, IndieWire

“Crucial...a film of flamboyant beauty and ideological severity.”

- –– Richard Brody, The New Yorker
