November 24 – Tout Va Bien

Tout Va Bien is set in 1972, i.e. four years after the “events” of 1968. President De Gaulle and his successor president Pompidou had rolled back the would-be revolution and the political right wing held France in its grip. And yet “everything’s fine” (tout va bien). Relations between people have changed. A factory is occupied, a woman striker phones her husband and tells him to mind the children, a Communist Party militant sells party literature in a supermarket and is ignored by young people.

Director – Jean Luc Godard, 95 minutes
