Available on iTunes, BFI Player
Jean-Luc Godard's compelling feature presents 12 episodes in the life of Nana (Anna Karina), a young Parisian who turns to prostitution after becoming disillusioned by poverty and her failing marriage. Stylistically innovative and boasting several of both the director's and star's most memorable moments, Vivre sa vie is an undiminished classic of the French New Wave that is by turns both playful and sad, and which borrows the aesthetics of cinema vérité to present a captivating vision of 1960s Parisian street life and pop culture.
