LE PETIT SOLDAT
THE LITTLE SOLDIER
1963, Rialto Pictures, 88 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

For its unblinking look at torture in the Algerian War, director Jean-Luc Godard’s follow-up to BREATHLESS was banned by the French government for three years. A French intelligence agent (Michel Subor) is sent to assassinate a leader of the National Liberation Front of Algeria; on the way, he falls for a young woman (Anna Karina, in her feature debut), whose ties to the resistance prove her undoing. In French with English subtitles.
