Tout va Bien

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin (1972)

Tout va Bien (1972) is regarded by many as the 1968 film. Tracing the journey of a couple who get caught up in the events of the ‘French May’ it goes to the heart of questions of class, exploitation and the banalities of capitalist commercialism. Along the way themes of politics, the meaning of revolution and radicalism in art are reflected upon against the backdrop of a Paris on fire with revolt.

Tout va Bien (‘Everything is Fine’) is by turns comedic and profound, as our main protagonists, a washed-up nouvelle vague director (Yves Montand) and an American journalist (Jane Fonda) trying to cover the events in France, become involved in the occupation of a sausage factory.

The film also stands out for the Brechtian cinematic techniques used by the directors, Jean-Luc Godard and Jean-Pierre Gorin, as they repeatedly break down the ‘fourth wall’ with voice over narratives, ‘direct interviews’ with factory workers and camera sweeps that cut across the walls of the factory; always reminding the audience that ‘it is a film we are watching’.
