La Chinoise

1967

Maoism appears as the latest campus fad in Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 film, which takes place largely in an appropriated bourgeois apartment where the half dozen young members of a Sorbonne cell perform their ideological exercises with the cheerfulness of summer campers. Godard seems a little frightened of these regimented children, who blithely decide to assassinate the Russian cultural attache; he brings on the veteran radical Francis Jeanson to rebuke their buried fascism, but by the next year Godard had joined their ranks himself. With Anne Wiazemsky, Jean-Pierre Leaud, and Juliette Berto. In French with subtitles.
