IN PRAISE OF LOVE
Godard | 2001 | Fra/Swi | 97m
“Film After Film”
*Intro by film critic J. Hoberman; followed by book signing
4:00 at MOMI

“Jean-Luc Godard’s In Praise of Love is tactile yet elusive—its tragic grandeur is as graspable as running water and as shifty as smoke. Like the earliest motion pictures, Godard’s new feature appears like a fact of nature. There’s a narrative—and an argument—but what’s initially moving, and ultimately as well, is the movie’s mournful celebration of its sensuous being. The images are punctuated by bits of black leader and gnomic intertitles, the action propelled by sweetly pulverized music and an effortlessly layered soundtrack of enigmatic conversations. Poetry is really the only word for it: “When I think about something, I’m really thinking about something else,” Godard’s protagonist says twice in a film that is forever talking about itself (or its audience).”
J. Hoberman, excerpted from his new book Film After Film
