Summary, etc.:
Dissatisfied in marriage and life, Ferdinand takes to the road with the babysitter, his ex-lover Marianne Renoir, and leaves the bourgeois world behind. Yet this is no normal road trip: the tenth feature in six years by Jean-Luc Godard is a stylish mash-up of anti-consumerist satire, au courant politics, and comic-book aesthetics, as well as a violent tale of a romantic couple. This is a high point of the French New Wave, and was Godard's last frolic before he moved further into radical cinema.
