FRENCH CINEMA @ MATTERDEN CFC – Le Mépris / Contempt
Le Mépris / Contempt by Jean-Luc Godard (102′)
Not satisfied with the script for his new movie, producer Jeremy Prokosch hires screenwriter Paul Javal to write a new one. Javal seems oblivious to Prokosch’s obvious interest in Javal’s pretty wife Camille. As Javal becomes ever more engrossed in writing the screenplay, Camille comes to resent him, thinking her husband is pushing her into the producer’s arms for his own benefit.
