Two bumbling burglars plan a robbery with a young woman they just met. Problems begin immediately when they both fall for the girl and the plan goes haywire. The jewel-heist plot is merely a jumping off point for Godard's fast-paced mix of fantasy and spoof of Hollywood crime films
Ausser Atem( Visual )

3 editions published between 1989 and 2007 in German and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gleich Godards erster Film wurde ein Klassiker. "Außer Atem" (1959) mit Jean-Paul Belmondo und Jean Seberg handelte von einem Kleingangster, der einen Polizisten erschießt und später von seiner Freundin an die Polizei verraten wird. Berühmt wurde Belmondos letzter Satz: "Du bist wirklich zum Kotzen", worauf sie in die Kamera blickt und treudoof fragt: "Kotzen? Was ist das?" "Außer Atem" war nicht nur ein Film, der das Lebensgefühl einer Generation spiegelte. Er verstieß gegen jede Regel der damaligen Filmästhetik. Aus langen Gesprächen schnitt Godard einfach Sätze und Satzfetzen heraus, ohne sich um die dadurch entstehenden Bildsprünge (Jump-Cuts) zu scheren. Godard spielte diese Neuerung herunter, als er in seinem Buch "Einführung in eine wahre Geschichte des Kinos" behauptete, sein Film sei einfach zu lang gewesen und er habe auf die Art und Weise schludrig gekürzt. Inhaltlich orientiert sich "Außer Atem" an den Gangster- und Gaunerfilmen Hollywoods; er ist ausdrücklich den Monogram Pictures gewidmet, einer Firma, die in den 40er Jahren auf billig produzierte Reißer spezialisiert war. Jean-Paul Belmondos berühmt gewordene Manierismen (mit dem Daumennagel über die Lippen streichen und so weiter) sind ein deutlicher Verweis auf ebenso manieristische Charaktere wie Bogarts Marlowe oder Sam Spade. Die klerikale deutsche Filmkritik konnte damals mit diesem Film nichts anfangen. [...]

2 ou 3 choses que je sais d'elle = 2 or 3 things I know about her by Jean-Luc Godard( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In this film, 'Her' refers to both Paris, the character of Juliette Janson and the actress playing her, Marina Vlady. The film is a kind of dramatised documentary, illustrating and exaggerating the emotionless lives of characters in the new Paris of the 60s, where commercialism mocks families getting by on small incomes, where prostitution is a moneyspinning option, and where people are coldly resigned and immune to the human nightmares of Vietnam, and impending Atomic war".

Eine Stripteasetänzerin will unbedingt von ihrem Geliebten ein Kind; weil dieser sich weigert, bittet sie den gemeinsamen Freund, ihren Wunsch zu erfüllen. Godards erster Versuch mit Direktton, Farbe und Cinemascope ist inspiriert vom Musical und von den Hollywoodkomödien der 30er Jahre. Godard kopiert jedoch die Vorbilder nicht naiv, sondern analysiert ihre Elemente (z.B. Musik, Farbe); ihn interessiert die erzählte Geschichte weniger als die Erzählmethode. Daher sprechen die Darsteller bisweilen direkt zum Publikum, daher erscheinen zum erstenmal gedruckte Wörter auf der Leinwand. Trotzdem wurde diese "Idee eines Musicals" (Godard) ein ganz und gar unernster Film. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 2000/2001 (CD-ROM)

Denounced by the Pope and banned and boycotted worldwide, this surprisingly serene and lyrical work translates the Virgin Birth into tangible contemporary terms, with Mary as a teenage basketball-playing gas-station attendant who receives the Annunciation by jetliner. Mary is a beautiful yet ordinary teenager who vows to maintain her chastity. Following a warning from an angel, a confused and innocent Mary unexpectedly falls pregnant and is forced to wed her taxi-driving boyfriend Joseph. He, in turn, must love his virgin bride from a distance, revering her without touching her.. Forced to face a shocking reality, Mary and Joseph along with their family and friends must struggle to cope as the provocative theme unfolds. Hail Mary is a sensational and bold work from French master director Jean-Luc Godard which touched off an uproar of protest heard around the world

"Ein Spielfilmregisseur, in seinen politischen Idealen durch die Ereignisse im Mai 1968 erschüttert, und seine Geliebte, die Pariser Korrespondentin einer amerikanischen Rundfunkgesellschaft, werden während einer Reportage in einer Wurstfabrik durch den Streik der Arbeiter fünf Tage mit dem leitenden Direktor eingesperrt. Der Film stellt nicht nur das Bürgertum, sondern auch die Haltung der Gewerkschaften und der Kommunistischen Partei in Frage. Mit Stilmitteln des Brechtschen "epischen Theaters" und einer Position, die man als "links unten" bezeichnen könnte, soll der Zuschauer zu einer Überprüfung seiner Rolle innerhalb der Gesellschaft veranlaßt werden."
