Pierrot le fou

"OK"

Pierrot le fou Review


Perhaps the greatest entry into the theater of the absurd, Godard's Pierrot le fou starts out as ridiculous and gets progressively sillier. Jean-Paul Belmondo stars as a family man named Ferdinand, who up and quits his family man life to jet through France with a mobstress (Anna Karina), who inexplicably calls him Pierrot. Their adventure through strangely tinted sets and with occasional dialogue drawn from TV commercials. Totally bizarre and ultimately without much point -- Godard's message about commercialism is drowned in a sea of oddity.
