One of the world's most influential filmmakers and a leading figure of the 'Nouvelle Vague' movement of the '60s, Jean-Luc Godard's works have transformed the face of cinema.
'Weekend' remains one of the most legendary, audacious and acclaimed films of his distinguished career. It follows a bickering, scheming bourgeois couple who leave Paris for the French countryside to claim an inheritance by nefarious means. Almost immediately, they become entangled in a cataclysmic traffic jam, which is just the beginning of a journey fraught with violent and dangerous encounters: rape, murder, pillage and even cannibalism.
Famed for its virtuoso cinematography - including a stunning ten-minute tracking shot - Godard's dystopian road movie is a ferocious attack on consumerism.
