Godard’s final film in his first period is a spirited call for revolution released just months before May 1968. The film follows a bourgeois couple, both involved in affairs and plots to murder each other, heading out on the road to secure an inheritance. Bursting with visual inventiveness and black humour, Week-End presents the world as an orgy of disorder, destruction and death fuelled by infidelity, murder and even cannibalism. Godard presents his ideas as a series of imaginative vignettes, the most celebrated of which tracks through a never-ending traffic jam plucked from the depths of Hell.
