CONTEMPT
LE MEPRIS
1963, Rialto Pictures, 103 min, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

The brilliantly vivid color palette is almost as ravishing as Brigitte Bardot in this masterpiece by Jean-Luc Godard. Bardot plays Camille, a woman whose marriage to her screenwriter husband comes to a swift, inevitable end over the course of a day on the Isle of Capri. With a score of aching beauty by Georges Delerue. In French with English subtitles.
