Synopsis de "Pierrot le fou"

Post  Smitha on Sat Dec 12, 2009 9:53 am



Pierrot le fou, a 1965 film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Jean-Pierre Belmondo and Anna Karina, is considered a fine example of postmodernism in cinema. The film's postmodern elements include its parodic but affectionate attitude towards American pop culture, its deliberate mixing of high and low art, its frequent dissection of popular movie conventions, and its use of a "deconstructed" collage-like narrative structure. The central character of Ferdinand also embodies Jameson's notion of the postmodern citizen as a victim of mass media, an individual who has lost the ability to distinguish truth from fiction or important issues from trivial ones.

The film's episodic structure provides Godard with the opportunity to express many conflicted feelings about pop culture, politics, America, literature, music, and cinema itself. Like many of Godard's films, Pierrot focuses on the conflicts that arise from lack of communication between men and women. It also makes numerous references to the Vietnam war and the Algerian war.

The Plot (as described on wikipedia)
Ferdinand Griffon (Jean-Paul Belmondo) is unhappily married and has been recently fired from his job at a TV broadcasting company. After a boring party in Paris, he decides to leave his wife and children for his baby-sitter, an ex-girlfriend, Marianne Renoir (Anna Karina). Following her into her apartment and finding a corpse, Ferdinand soon discovers that Marianne is being chased by Algerian gangsters, two of whom they barely escape. Ferdinand (whom Marianne decides to call Pierrot, much to his annoyance) and Marianne go on a traveling crime spree from Paris to the Mediterranean Sea in the dead man's car. They lead an unorthodox life, always on the run. Settling down in the French Riviera after having burnt the dead man's car (full of money) and sunk a second car into the Mediterranean Sea, their relationship gets worse and worse. Ferdinand does not understand nor wish to understand the adventure into which Marianne brought him and ends up reading books, philosophizing and writing in his diary. Marianne becomes bored by Ferdinand's settled life and drives him into a night-club where they meet one of their pursuers. After defeating the gangsters, Marianne and Ferdinand are separated, with Marianne traveling in search of Ferdinand and Ferdinand settling in Nice. After their eventual reunion, Marianne uses Ferdinand to get a suitcase full of money that was taken from the gangsters before running away with her real boyfriend, to whom she had previously referred as her brother. Pierrot shoots Marianne and her boyfriend, and, in the climactic scene, paints his face blue and decides to blow himself up by tying sticks of red and yellow dynamite to his head. Regretting his decision at the last second, he tries to extinguish the fuse, but he is blinded by the dynamite and is blown up.
