Godard Interview

Very nice interview of Godard. The most interesting bit comes a little later when the interviewer asks him about Brigitte Bardot and the famous nude scene at the beginning of Contempt (surely one of the greatest nude scenes ever!). "It is like asking Praxiletes when he was sculpting the nude Venus, 'Did Venus agree to undress?'" Godard says.

The scene in question here in case you haven't seen it. It is PG13 stuff but you will never see another nude female body on screen the same way after watching it. (No subtitles though.)
