One of Jean-Luc Godard's later works, this complex allegorical tale tells the story of man's quest for spiritual meaning. When God enters the body of 1980s filmmaker Simon Donnadieu (Gérard Depardieu), his wife Rachel (Laurence Masliah) realises that something has gone awry, but chooses to remain faithful to her erratically-behaving husband. A range of narrators provide differing views of the same events through a criss-crossing web of flashbacks, while title screens interrupt the action at intervals throughout the film, and the characters embark upon lengthy digressions on philosophical, literary and spiritual questions.

And Godard (like Brecht) forever wishes to remind his audience that they're only watching a film, and that film is an expression of art; and in this case it's his.
Helas Pour Moi is a film much like others from this period - a wash of text on screen and from the actors, bites of classical music, and a saturation of colours and images all corresponding with Godard's view that you're not watching his work to be entertained, rather to be informed. If there was a plot in this film, I've yet to find it.
