Description:

With the full-force fury of the French New Wave film movement behind them Truffaut and Godard were just beginning to feel their oats when they co-directed this small gem. With the wham, pop, bam of a smoking hot Jazz soundtrack echoing through the French countryside (one of many odd contradictory elements), Godard himself narrates the loosely constructed story of a young woman attempting to make her way from her home in the country to Paris, amid a massive flood.
