Jean-Luc Godard & Jean-Pierre Gorin - Letter to Jane (1972)

Letter to Jane
This is the postscript to Tout va Bien, showing only still photography (mainly a single photo of Jane Fonda, but also some others) accompanied by a spoken letter by Jean-Piere Gorin and Jean-Luc Godard adressed to Jane Fonda. This 'film' is a far cry from the colorfull tongue in cheek aproach that make Tout va Bien so entertaining. This one isn't entertaining at all, but it is rather interesting to see such a carefull examination of what most of us consider 'just' a picture. It is in english, although the French accent of both speakers is sometimes a bit hard to follow and there are some moments the speach is drowned out by music. This film isn't their best, but still worth a (partial) viewing for every Godard fan.
