Overcooked - Pierrot le Fou review by dl

Spoiler Alert

I keep trying with Godard out of the 12 or so films I’ve seen from him only a couple remain bonafide classics for me (Le Mepris, Vivre Se Vie).I really thought this one was going to be added to that list especially after a fantastic colourful and very playful first hour which flowed so effortlessly and with such charisma from the always delightful Anna Karina, she is so very infectious to watch as she plays with the camera at times and in the moments she suddenly starts to sing her lines out, but then unfortunately Belmondo joins in and immediately ruins the whole effect, and i think this is where the movie really started to fail for me… Belmondo he just feels like he is so disinterested with the whole thing in that he becomes so very monotonous and awkward to watch he really kills the playfulness of that first hour and leads it to a grinding halt. Without A doubt though it’s such gorgeous movie to look at with it’s striking use of primary colours its music and in its very experimental techniques which where very groundbreaking for its time, but in the end it all becomes such a frustrating and incoherent mixture/mess of movie genres that i could not wait for them end titles to appear.6/10
