Entertainment Reviews:

Chicago Sun-Times - 09/05/1997
"...[Bardot] seems very natural..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2004
"Godard's masterpiece works on several levels: as a self-reflexive satire about filmmaking, as a study of relationship in its dying throes and as a reworking of a classical myth."
Total Film - 02/01/2004
"Sardonically scripted, it was shot in luminous Mediterranean locales..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/11/2008
"[A] masterpiece, a poetic, deeply reflective reverie on the interplay between a disintegrating marriage and the problematic filming of THE ODYSSEY in Italy."
Los Angeles Times - 01/16/2014
"CONTEMPT has the additional fascination of being a movie about the movies in which the age-old conflict between art and business counterpoints a love affair at a crisis point."

Plot Synopsis:

In this cynical look at the art of filmmaking, a director attempts to retell Homer's THE ODYSSEY. He wrangles with his own creative process and the coarse producer's ridiculous demands.
