"Godard's full length take on 3D is bold, brilliant and exactly what the format needed." – Indiewire

A dog explores a forest. A naked couple, in the midst of an affair, discuss the modern world. A windscreen wiper shifts water off laminated glass.

One of the most anticipated films at this year's Cannes Film Festival, Jean-Luc Godard's Goodbye to Language shows that the 83-year-old auteur is as keen to push boundaries as ever, with his use of clips from cinema's history, 3D split screen, poetry and avant-garde sound design ensuring a perplexing and radical cinema experience. A legend of cinema's past and present, Godard may have presented us with a window into its future.

Joint winner of the Jury Prize at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.
