Probably the best vacation in the world…

I’m not big on holiday breaks, although i have travelled extensively i find it hard to relax on the beach, and tend to worry about responsibilities back home, and i’ve never been one for saving to go away… lame i know!

But Godard’s Pierrot Le Fou , looks to me like the ideal getaway …. so good in fact, it wouldn’t matter if i never came back.

Now if only I could Carpe Diem

  1. I love being on holiday but the arrangement, from booking stuff to packing, really bums me out. As beautiful as Anna Karina is, I could also do without wrapping dynamite round my head at the end of break too. Le Fou is just great, the tipping-point for Godard between style and diatribe. While À Bout de Souffle is a road movie in stasis (Belmondo just can’t get going), in Le Fou the road proves too prescriptive and Ferdinand drives off, straight into the sea. Carpe Diem indeed.
