An intense drama of love and death amidst the complications and betrayals of Algeria’s bloody quest for independence from French colonisation. Can Bruno – with deep and ambivalent ties to French actions – find happiness with Veronica, and her links to the Algerian National Front? Banned for three years, this Anna Karina debut and Jean-Luc Godard's sophomore feature tackles the most divisive issues facing French society, in a brutally human story of choices, between dreams of escape and the realities of deadly warfare.
