Pierrot le Fou

Pierrot le Fou

In Godard's Pierrot le Fou, a spontaneous, troubled couple become traveling fugitives, escaping the law and responsibility, while searching for the understanding of life, the perfection of love. One of Godard's first films that uses color, he takes advantage of the new dimension of visual storytelling by weaving metaphorical representations of emotions into vibrant colors. Once again, Godard doesn't let you forget that you're watching a movie, and as a result, these unconventional, and unrelatable characters are actually isolated, and established as allegorical delivery devices first, humans second.

Your experience with this movie is probably much different than mine, but I highly doubt it was less surreally satisfying or inspirational. Pierrot le Fou is simply episodes of rebellion, philosophy, and opaque exposition of heavy ideas.

That's life.
