Special feature: Disc 3: Bonus featurette: Jean-Luc Godard: a riddle wrapped in an enigma.
Summary Passion: Uninspired and overbudget, a bored Polish film director who is shooting a tedious movie in France, begins simultaneous love affairs with two very different women--Hanna, the owner of the hotel where his film crew stays, and Isabelle, a factory worker fired by Hanna's husband.
First name, Carmen = Prénom Carmen: A satirical black comedy that winks at Mérimée's classic, a famous director pretends to be ill in a mental institution but is actually trying to avoid making films. He is enlisted by his niece Carmen who wants his empty apartment as a hideaway for a bank robbery she and her friends are about to commit.
Detective: Godard's pastiche of genres from romance and gangster films to slapstick, melodrama, crime stories and film noir incorporates several stories set in one Parisian hotel, featuring a hotel detective and assistant, a fight promoter having an affair, and a Mafia chieftain.
Oh, woe is me = Hélas pour moi: A surrealistic modern take on the Greek myth where Zeus descends to earth to seduce a woman by disguising himself as her husband. Simon, the husband of Rachel, is targeted by a cruel God determined to experience real love.
