Her brother brings the babysitter Marianne Renoir to take care of their children. Ferdinand feels bored in the bourgeois party and borrows his brother-in-law’s car to return home. He meets Marianne, who was his lover five years ago and insists on calling him Pierrot, and offers to take her home. However, he spends the night with her and finds that she is involved in smuggling weapons. When Marianne is chased by terrorists, they decide to travel to the beach without any money, leaving Paris and his family behind in a crazy journey to nowhere.

Crime Story and Musical, Melodrama and Grotesque Comedy
“Film is like a battleground”, tells Samuel Fuller Ferdinand in the beginning of this film: “Love, hate, action, violence, death. In one word: emotion.” ‘Pierrot le fou’ is a 110 minutes film by Godard and his tenth feature. It’s roughly based on a crime novel written by Lionel White. Tho, don’t expect a linear adaptation. In fact, Godard and his actors mostly improvised and therefore deliver a dodgy ‘surrealeperiment’.
The plot summary therefore must be given a little superficially: It’s about a wannabe writer, Ferdinand Griffon (Belmondo) who escapes his every day life and runs off with his mistress Marianne (Karina) to the Mediterranean Sea. Far away from his family, he lives for the moment, reads books and tries to work on a diary. Meanwhile, the police and Algerian killers are chasing Marianne because she has committed a murder.
Godard assembles philosophical texts with shots of posters and screens, sets in musical elements and achieves to encode his film in a very inspiring way. Sometimes the imagery is fair and beautiful (i. e. Belmondo and Karina are running along a silhouette like forest which is photographed in front of a white, flat background), sometimes odious and angry (i. e. Belmondo finds an Algerian murdered with scissors and he keeps on raking in the wound), sometimes stirringly artistic (i. e. Karina takes the murder instrument, the scissors holds it in front of a wide-angle-lens and creates an unbelievably coherent effect of distortion).
Those who take the film with a living mind will experience a fascinating, beautifully filmed love story with two protagonists who do everything within the power of their tremendous acting potential. Concerning the contents, it is a cinematic toying with the duality of the characters (Ferdinand and Pierrot or Ferdinand or Marianne) or rather with schizophrenia. Belmondo plays a mad crackpot who first has a pretty martialistic based life as a husband and father whose world view staggers because of upcoming converse feelings – personated by Karina. She, married with Godard at that time, plays the character Marianne with wit, depth and anarchic charme. Her role is the symbolic enlightenment in Ferdinands being. While he strives melancholically for wisdom and always throbs on the importance of the arts, Marianne is a lackadaisical playgirl and swinger who wants to be instead of having. Belmondo as Ferdinand shows in all of his agility a vulnerability that hides behind the same gruffness of ‘Une femme est une femme’.
‘Pierrot le fou’ is a film that dines from various influences, having some sort of private, economic, cultural or political natures. More than every other ‘auteur’ Godard manifests himself once more as the chronologist of his time.
My favorite thing
I was fifteen when I saw this movie for the first time. I didn’t knew much about cinema at this time. I didn’t knew much about art either, nor music, nor nothing. But I will never forget the shock it was for me to discover that movie. This was pure poetry, it was the first time in my life I ever saw blue color, red and yellow. You don’t have to be intellectual to love this movie, just a free child.
About some strange English subtitles I have on my DVD:
At the end of the movie, we can hear in French the first lines of a poem by Arthur Rimbaud (L’Eternité, 1872):
(Here I wanted to write the original french lines, but I’m not allowed. Curious world.)
It’s ours again / what is ? / eternity / No that’s just the sea And the Sun
It should have been:
It is found again./ What is ? Eternity/ It is the sea/ Gone with the sun./
Minute 41. Ferdinand and Marianne are watching the man on the moon.
F: – He thinks your legs and your breasts are very moving/ M: – Be quiet
But I can hear in French:
F: – I find your legs and your breasts very moving/ M: – Fcuk me
