Vivre Sa Vie

Vivre Sa Vie

Nana (Anna Karina) abandons her husband and son with dreams of becoming an actress, but soon finds herself a willing prostitute, and eventually finds herself dead. Godard cuts the film into a dozen vignettes, and edits them further to disrupt the traditional flow of time and focus the audience’s attention. A scathing observation on consumerism where even human life is a commodity to be bartered.
