Le mépris

Le Mépris

1963
Jean-Luc Godard (1930. Paris)

A perfect scenario, gorgeous actors and a totally oppressive atmosphere.

How did I come to choose this image?

Bardot – Barbie… to my mind, it was bound to happen: same hairstyle, same style, same attitudes.

The picture of a couple splitting up after a series of misunderstandings and words untold, gave me a good opportunity of introducing Ken, Barbie’s supposed boyfriend.

Moreover, I’m completely fascinated by the Malaparte Villa, a block of red concrete overlooking the sea.
