Rating: 3.5/4 -- A noble effort to bring anti-bourgeois cinema to the masses; needless to say, the masses stayed home. Full Review

Godard at his dullest and most didactic. Full Review

Rating: C+ -- It's the kind of in-your-face political film about the class struggle where the indiscriminate viewer might feel guilty munching on popcorn. Full Review

A little simplistic at times but acidly funny, with Godard's genius for the arresting image once more well to the fore.

[I]t is full of black wit and stylistic invention....Godard makes vivid use of sound effects and set design...

Its arguments -- applied to, say, Far East sweatshops -- remain just as relevant today.

Product Description:

Iconoclastic French director Jean-Luc Godard became radicalized politically after the events of May 1968 in Paris, openly expressing admiration for the writings of Mao Zedong and other leftist leaders. Godard and his cohort, Jean-Pierre Gorin, even formed a Marxist film society, the Dziga Vertov Group, after the early Soviet documentarian. TOUT VA BIEN marked Godard's return to semi-commercial cinema, attempting to blend a relationship narrative centered around a labor strike with an experimental aesthetic and an overtly leftist political rhetoric. Godard took the opportunity to criticize consumer capitalism (a theme he had been exploring at least since 1966's 2 OR 3 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT HER) but also expressed discontent at how little left political organizations accomplished after the euphoria of May 1968. The film features Yves Montand and Jane Fonda (the film was fuel for the fire when Fonda was dubbed "Hanoi Jane" for expressing sympathy for the North Vietnamese), both of whom were major stars at the time. TOUT VA BIEN is both a fascinating avant-garde narrative film as well as an interesting historical-political document.
