Vivre Sa Vie

A film by Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Anna Karina

“A PERFECT FILM! One of the most extraordinary, beautiful, and original works of art that I know of .” – Susan Sontag

Faced with a failed relationship, a dead-end job, and potential homelessness, young Parisienne Nana Kleinfrankenheim (Anna Karina) turns to “the life” – that is, prostitution. A simple tale told in twelve Brechtian tableaux, Vivre sa vie is one of Godard’s most deeply felt films, anchored by Karina’s astonishing lead performance and Nouvelle Vague favorite Raoul Coutard’s breathtaking cinematography of street-level Paris. Janus Films is proud to present this early masterpiece in a new 35mm print.
