Jean-Luc Godard is cinema, its quintessence. He has made more than 120 films. We hate him as much as we worship him. Where does his aura come from? From legendary filams of course, but also from Godard himself. He is a public figure as much as a man surrounded by mystery. This portrait takes us beyond the clichés of a myth that has sometimes become caricatural, to meet a man more sentimental than it seems, a man inhabited, sometimes surpassed, by his art.
