About this movie

Legendary director Jean-Luc Godard’s CONTEMPT is a movie within a movie – on the surface, the film is about a director (Michel Piccoli) whose wife Camille (Brigitte Bardot) falls out of love with him while he is rewriting an adaptation of Homer’s ODYSSEY for an American producer (Jack Palance). But underneath this tragic tale of a doomed romance lies Godard’s true subject: the commercial film industry, which he shows his CONTEMPT for in a directing performance that is slyly subversive, darkly comic and completely original.
