New Images Unveiled From Jean-Luc Godard’s 'Goodbye To Language 3D'

The Playlist By Kevin Jagernauth | The Playlist March 24, 2014 at 1:22PM

Will 2014 finally be the year we see Jean Luc-Godard's "Goodbye To Language 3D"? It has been four years since his garishly digital headscratcher "Film socialisme," and while he did contribute to the omnibus "3X3D," it's "Goodbye To Language 3D"—his first feature entirely in the format—that everyone has been waiting for. A teaser (soon yanked) dropped online as long ago as last summer, but with the Cannes Film Festival around the corner, could the movie finally be seeing release? (The status of his one is so ephemeral, we had left it as an honorable mention in our predictions for this year's fest.)

Goodbye To Language 3D

Will 2014 finally be the year we see Jean Luc-Godard's "Goodbye To Language 3D"? It has been four years since his garishly digital headscratcher "Film socialisme," and while he did contribute to the omnibus "3X3D," it's "Goodbye To Language 3D"—his first feature entirely in the format—that everyone has been waiting for. A teaser (soon yanked) dropped online as long ago as last summer, but with the Cannes Film Festival around the corner, could the movie finally be seeing release? (The status of his one is so ephemeral, we had left it as an honorable mention in our predictions for this year's fest.)

Well, with a batch of stills arriving, it perhaps suggests the movie is closing in on the finish line. And while previous descriptions of the plot suggested a story about a talking dog who intervenes between a man and a woman who no longer speak the same language, this new official synopsis is even odder, if that's possible:

The idea is simple:

A married woman and a single man meet.

They love, they argue, fists fly.

A dog strays between town and country.

The seasons pass.

The man and woman meet again.

The dog finds itself between them.

The other is in one,

the one is in the other

and they are three.

The former husband shatters everything.

A second film begins:

the same as the first,

and yet not.

From the human race we pass to metaphor.

This ends in barking

and a baby's cries.

In the meantime, we will have seen

people talking of the demise of the dollar,

of truth in mathematics

and of the death of a robin.

Keep on shining, you crazy diamond, and along with these particular stills which range from people in old-timey costumes to more modern-looking material, we're not sure what to expect. No word yet on release dates, and while Fox at one time was said to have the U.S. rights, we wouldn't be surprised if that wasn't the case anymore. [The Film Stage]
