Faced with a failed relationship, a dead-end job, and potential homelessness, young Parisienne Nana (Anna Karina) turns to "the life" - that is, prostitution. A simple tale told in twelve Brechtian tableaux, Vivre sa vie is one of Jean-Luc Godard's most deeply felt films, anchored by Karina's astonishing lead performance and Nouvelle Vague favorite Raoul Coutard's breathtaking cinematography of street-level Paris. Dir. Jean-Luc Godard, 1962, France, 85min, New 35mm print courtesy of Janus Films.
