Goodbye to Language is Jean-Luc Godard’s latest feature film. Winner of the Jury prize at the Cannes Film Festival 2014, the film is an experimental visual and sensory experience, shot in 3D. The idea is simple: A married woman and a single man meet. They love, they argue, fists fly. A dog strays between town and country. The seasons pass. The man and woman meet again. The dog finds itself between them. The other is in one, the one is in the other and they are three. The former husband shatters everything. A second film begins: the same as the first, and yet not. From the human race we pass to metaphor. This ends in barking and a baby’s cries.

Freud and the art of film began at the start of the 20th century:they both in some ways are parallel developments, exploring reality, based on new techniques. Godard shows us perception and consciousness, how an animal's eyes are unclouded by consciousness. Godard shows human beings weighed down by interpretations,needing interpretation .Read more ›
Six stars for the Film. Two stars for the Blu-ray:
- Subtitles can't be turned of, which dosn't make any sense for a medium so crucially relying on it's visual aspect and clarity as 3D.
- No extras whatsoever. Instead, beforehand, some imprinted trailers.
Godard runs some ideas by us which hold some weight, also. Chilling to consider Hitler as having succeeded in his intentions, through the conquering of land with ideas, just as Napoleon may have been defeated militarily but the idea of the Republic had conquered Europe. I think Godard's recent work has been strong in illuminating how many victories fascism has sustained into present-day Europe, despite its apparent defeat. He takes the trouble to list the longer-lasting achievements of the Republic, while he's at it, and one of the characters gives us a heads-up to Jacques Ellul, and his powers of prediction in seeing the modern age. I had never heard of him, but I was aware of the "think global, act local" philosophy which is apparently attributed to him. I find you always learn from Godard. I was ignorant of Hannah Arendt and Simone Weil, before seeing his 21st century films, of which I still think Eloge de l'amour is perhaps the best I've seen so far, although I feel Film Socialisme was under-rated and I like Notre Musique.
Some of the relationship between the couple gets lost in the midst of the film, I'm not really sure what's going on here, or if I need to know.Read more ›

Goodbye to language is great. This is a way to see that helps me to see better. I can recognize "Soigne ta droite" and "Nouvelle vague" (the film). 3D is secondary.Published 23 months ago by Arm
Watching this movie in the cinema was a visually fascinating experience, even though I mostly didn't quite grasp what Godard was getting at with the actual 'content' of the film. Read morePublished 24 months ago by Michael 'De Smurführer' Thomsen
