In Godard's words, this is a film with a beginning, a middle and an end - but not necessarily in that order. It's a fascinating experiment: five reels - each centred on the tangled relationship between a divorced author, a volatile film producer and a determinedly free spirited young woman, all involved at some point or another with gun toting hoods - which may be shown in any order. The arrangement I saw definitely worked, since the themes of chance, predestination, choice and indecision were well to the fore. Witty, perceptive and consistently intriguing.
