Godard's Cannes submission, 'Socialisme', in four minutes

Text by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2010-04-29

Trailers for the legendary Swiss-French film director Jean-Luc Godard's Cannes submission compress the entire movie into a few minutes.

He’s the biggest name in French cinema (even though he also holds Swiss citizenship) and is known around the world for turning cinema on its head.

Six trailers for “Socialisme”, the director’s submission for the “Un Certain Regard” category at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, will no doubt fascinate his fans and perplex everyone else.

The longest online version of the film is 4:25 minutes long, and by condensing the other five versions to increasingly shorter lengths (the last coming in at 1:07), Godard provides his viewers with an increasingly hypnotic and weirdly web-centric vision of his work.
