Pierrot Le Fou, which translates to “Pete the Mad Man�, is the tenth feature film by French director Jean-Luc Godard, one of the pioneers of cinema’s French New Wave movement. The film stars French New Wave icon Jean-Paul Belmondo in the titular role, a business man who, after attending a particularly bourgeois dinner party, rebels against inane small talk by abruptly leaving his wife and running away with his children’s baby-sitter, Marianna, (Anna Karina, the muse of so many of Godard’s films). Pierrot soon finds that Marianna is already embroiled in intrigue with Algerian gangsters, murder, a suitcase full of money, and more. Needless to say, their lives are in danger. What follows is a fiendishly bizarre and very French New Wave adventure full of fourth-wall breaking, pop art, face paint, and other facets of post-modernism. The film also includes one of Godard’s most shocking and exciting finales.
