Film Fest Gent - Le Mepris
Archived: Le Mepris - Mepris, le (1963)

director: Jean-luc Godard

composer: Georges Delerue, Piero Piccioni
With: Brigitte Bardot, Michel Piccoli, Jack Palance, a.o.


A philistine in the art film business, Jeremy Prokosch (Jack Palance) is a producer unhappy with the work of his director. Prokosch has hired Fritz Lang (as himself) to direct an adaptation of "The Odyssey," but when it seems that the legendary filmmaker is making a picture destined to bomb at the box office, he brings in a screenwriter (Michel Piccoli) to energize the script. The professional intersects with the personal when a rift develops between the writer and his wife (Brigitte Bardot).
