Review
Nana is a provincial girl working as a shop assistant who, after separating from her husband, decides to embark on a career as an actress. She watches the silent classic 'The Passion Of Joan Of Arc' and, with tears streaming down her face, abandons her ambition and instead drifts into a life of prostitution. The film is presented in twelve episodes which navigate us through Nana's sad life climaxing with a shocking and poignant finale. Jean-Luc Godard expertly directs his then wife, Anna Karina, in one of the seminal movies of the French new wave. Awesomely intellectual (I think).
