"Treating the cinema-as-dream-factory metaphor with amusing literalness, there are few funnier Godard films than this satire about the perils of commercial filmmaking. 'Grandeur et décadence' inevitably looks back to 'Le mépris' in its bitterly funny portrait of filmmaking." (James Quandt)

Followed by a talk with Tom Paulus (University of Antwerp) on Monday 16 October.
