The movie consist of a collage of a series of 'sketches'. Each offering an insightful, and somewhat 'second degrée', perspective of a group of näive bourgeois college students immersing themselves in the teachings of Chairman Mao, playing at plotting a communist coup, discussing politics in a college republic style, all the ideals that made the avant-garde at the time. Just before the romantic may 68 student riots.
Godard's style is crude in a radical (typical of the time) and contaminated by contemporary pop-art, visually and also in the soundtrack.
The most political of his works, it still doesn't say much about his own political beliefs.
