Synopsis

In French with English subtitles. 

 

Vivre sa vie was a turning point for Jean-Luc Godard and remains one of his most dynamic films, combining brilliant visual design with a tragic character study. The lovely Anna Karina, Godard's greatest muse, plays Nana, a young Parisian who aspires to be an actress but instead ends up a prostitute; her downward spiral is depicted in a series of discrete tableaux of daydreams and dances. Featuring some of Karina and Godard's most iconic moments - from her movie theater vigil with The Passion of Joan of Arc to her seductive pool-hall strut - Vivre sa vie is a landmark of the French New Wave that still surprises at every turn.
