Regarded as Godard and Gorin's return to so-called mainstream cinema after a period of four years with the Marxist, Dzigha-Vertov Group making short films and videos for political groups and student campuses, during which time Godard had been forced to make TV commercials. Four years after the 1968 student riots, Godard's film directly addresses both the revised expectations of earlier radicals and the difficulty of trying to say anything radical in a conventional film form within a capitalist system. Jane Fonda and Yves Montand star as an American journalist and French ex-New Wave film director who get caught up with a factory strike and a sit-in where the bosses are held captive. With the ironic use of its stars, the film manages to be both politically astute, formally self-reflexive and entertaining.
