Les Carabiniers

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard

Described as Godard’s ‘strangest movie’, this powerful anti-war film is a chilling vision with flashes of dark humour. Based on a political play by Roberto Rossellini, it follows two thick thugs who join up as soldiers. After pillaging the world, they return home to their wives, trailing plunder. The director juxtaposes their mindless adventures with archive footage of warfare to stunning effect.
