Film – Jean-Luc Godard

Expat Cinema: Le Mépris

Brigitte Bardot is unforgettable in one of Jean-Luc Godard's biggest films. We're screening it with English subtitles, drinks and fun activities during Cineville Aperitivo, a special Expat Cinema event.

In Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's "Odyssey"; Fritz Lang directs with American money. Jeremy Prokosch, the producer, with his sneer and his red Alfa Romeo, holds art films in contempt and hires writer Javal to help Lang commercialize the picture.

Against this backdrop, we watch the breakup of Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking for assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day, he introduces her to Prokosch and, unawares, blunders unforgivably. In their apartment and in public, Camille expresses her hurt and change of heart as Javal slowly grasps the source of her contempt.
