Every once in a while I love to revisit my favorite French films:
Surprisingly enough I hadn't yet seen Vivre Sa Vie until the other night - and it is now easily my favorite Godard film. It has one of the saddest speeches I've ever seen/heard in a movie.
The Philosopher: For that, love would always have to be true.
There are a variety of interesting philosophical and sociological themes in the film- from womens autonomy, the concept of freedom, the social impact of prostitution, and Plato's philosophy of language. It's so subtly done- and like all Cinéma vérité, you feel as though you are truly glimpsing into someones life. This is really worth watching if you haven't already seen it.
