La chinoise

(Francia / 1967 / 95’)

Paris, in the summer of 1967. While their parents are out of town, some young communist activists study Mao Tse-Tung, to apply his thoughts to their lives. They are
living in a huge bourgeois apartament and they discuss all the time, listening to Radio Pechino and planning their revolution. Jean-Luc Godard, master of the French
New Wave, realises an experimentation through an innovative style that make the film a fundamental masterpiece. Among utopia, literature quotes and red books, the film is inspired by Paul Nizan’s La Conspiration. Once again Godard demonstrates his foresight, anticipating of one year the revolutionary wave that invaded Paris in May of 1968.
