French-Swiss filmmaker, screenwriter, and cinema critic Jean-Luc Godard was born in Switzerland. Jean-Luc Godard became well-known as a founder of the French New Wave film movement in the 1960s, and many consider him to be the most significant post-war French director.
His work “revolutionized the motion picture form,” in the words of AllMovie, with its experiments with narrative, continuity, sound, and camerawork.
Godard questioned the “Tradition of Quality” in mainstream French cinema during his early career as a film critic for the prestigious publication Cahiers du Cinéma, which favored established convention over innovation and experimentation.
Jean-Luc Godard married Anna Karina and Anne Wiazemsky, two actresses who both appeared in several of his movies, twice. The critically acclaimed films Vivre sa vie (1962), Bande à part (1964), and Pierrot le Fou (1965) were produced as a result of his collaborations with Karina, which Filmmaker magazine referred to as “probably the most important collection of work in the history of cinema.”
