Grandeur et décadence


Les found this intriguing TV entry on the Internet Movie Database Web site.

The show was written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard, director of the classic films Breathless and Masculin, féminin. This production featured the music of Joni, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan, with a cast that included Jean-Pierre Léaud (The 400 Blows, Stolen Kisses), Jean-Pierre Mocky, Nathalie Richard and Marie Valera.

The IMDB is skimpy on the details for this one, so that's pretty much all we know. Are you familiar with this show? If so, please tell us everything you know about it maintenant!

Mitchell Wu writes: This film was recently restored and shown on MUBI. After the 45 minute mark, a character plays "Shadows and Light" from a cassette - it's just the first 17 seconds of the song. Hope that helps!
