“[There is} Godard himself, drawing all the threads together in a confessional performance as a burnt-out film-maker languishing in a lunatic asylum, out of which he is tempted only to suffer both professional and personal betrayal by Carmen (last name Karina?). Not for nothing does the film carry a nostalgic dedication ‘in memoriam small movies’. This, throwaway jokes and all, is Godard back at his most nouvelle vague in years.” Time Out
