that's awesome! thanks for sharing

Is that Juliet Berto or did every French girl of the 1960s look like that?

Filmbrain

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm not sure. It does look like her, but I think that was a popular look back then...

Robert

Incredible! How is it possible that I've never seen this mentioned anywhere? Did JLG make any others for the agency?

craig keller.

Andrew --

Just a quick comment to note his name is not "Pierre Gorin" — it's Jean-Pierre Gorin.

The woman is indeed Juliet Berto, the greatest actress in the history of the cinema.

craig.

Filmbrain

Craig --

Thanks for catching that. At least I got it right on the Vimeo page.

Thanks also for confirming that it's Berto. Now -- can we identify the other actor?

Tom Russell

This is now my favourite post-1968 Godard film. Seriously.

Of course (and here your humble commentator risks giving Filmbrain a serious case of apoplexy) that's not saying a whole lot as I've never really been a huge fan of post-1968 Godard anyway.

I think it's very Marxist. Marx is a critical philosopher, not an ideologue, and this is a highly critical little film. The sheer audacity of slipping middle eastern politics into an aftershave commercial! The overt comparison of international conflict with the narcissistic stupidity of intepersonal family squabbles! The highly critical implications of the suggestion that a pleasant smell and all is forgiven (the suggestion that happiness, pleasure, security, not reason, not language, not argument, is the basis of social unity).

It's thought-provoking. And I'm tempted to agree with Tom Russell -- this may be my favorite post 68 Godard, too!

Thanks for this!

It does pose existential questions like, if he has a razor, why that moustache? I'm going to look out for Schick now.

I don't think he should leave it on that windowsill in the sun though...
