"The most quintessential movie of Godard's great period."
— J. Hoberman, Village Voice

Described by its heroine as "just like a Walt Disney movie, only with blood," this meta-thriller casts Karina as a female Bogart searching for her missing lover (voiced by Godard) in a treacherous "Atlantic City" (strongly resembling Paris) peopled by characters with names like Richard Widmark, Donald Siegel, and Richard Nixon. The plot is deliberately, playfully indecipherable in homage to THE BIG SLEEP, and Raoul Coutard's gorgeous cinematography is laced with bold splashes of pop-art color. In French with English subtitles. 35mm widescreen (MR)
