Composed entirely by literary quotations from many different sources and from several historical periods, Godard’s film works as an allegory on film. The loose narrative tells about a drifter found by a rich woman who soon falls in love with him. A drowning accident takes place and the drifter dies but some time later, he reappears in the woman’s life looking for a job. Or could it be the man’s twin brother?

I have been looking for a subtitled version of this for 20 years. Thanks!
OMG! About fainted when I found this film with English Subtitles. I know the entire backdtory with Delon’s surprise to the press conference–his arrival in his helicopter to support Godard. It was epic! The videos showing the director setting up the scenes. All in French. Watched the movie as one might view an opera. Love this film!
