Anna Karina et Jean-Luc Godard
Anna-Karina and Jean Luc Godard. In the 1950s, cinema was as important as bread—but it isn’t the case any more. We thought cinema would assert itself as an instrument of knowledge, a microscope, a telescope…At the Cinémathèque, I discovered a world which nobody had spoken to me about. They’d told us about Goethe, but not Dreyer…We watched silent films in the era of talkies. We dreamed about film. We were like Christians in the catacombs. - Jean-Luc Godard

She may not be as well known as some movie icons, but Anna Karina, queen of French cinema’s New Wave, as well as a singer and writer, is arguably one of the most enchanting woman. All bangs and black cat-eyes, she might be described as the art-house brunette to Bardot’s blonde bombshell.
