Contempt [Le Mepris]

Paris: Les Films Concordia, 1963. Vintage oversize borderless double weight photograph of Brigitte Bardot and Michel Piccoli on the set of the 1963 film. With the stamp of photographer Aldo Durazzi and a press agency stamp on the verso.

Godard's lush Technicolor landmark that transformed Brigitte Bardot from a sex symbol into an art object, while simultaneously furthering his own reputation for being the most commercially successful deconstructionist in film history. A fascinating film that can be watched either as narrative about a disintegrating relationship or as an unending series of pure cinematic references.

12 x 9.5 inches. Near Fine.
