I don’t know why I’m so happy watching this movie by Jean-Luc Godard. It doesn’t make any sense, but maybe that’s a point of happiness: to not have to make sense.
Stop making sense could be the motto of Jean-Paul Belmondo and Anna Karina in this movie. Only the moment counts. If you catch one, you feel life. And you don’t need many of them. Just one is enough to get a glimpse of eternity.
That’s what makes me sad: life is so different from books. I wish it were the same: clear, logical, organized.Marianne
It’s a Bonny and Clyde story a la Francaise, a la Nouvelle Vague. What the hell is “Nouvelle Vague” you might ask in 2018, the year that failed to match expectations of Science Fiction movies.
“Pierrot Le Fou” is the total chaos of imagination that demands something of life. And it’s not career or getting rich. It’s to feel the moment, to know you are alive.
Why do you look so sad? Because you speak to me in words and I look at you with feelings.Ferdinand
Watch the movie and try to not let it get to you. Impossible. You want to be cool? Look at Jean-Paul Belmondo in this movie and give up. You will not get to this existential heights. But you might find relief of the banality of today.
Get into the chaos. Forget “Bonnie and Clyde”. Watch “Pierrot Le Fou”!
