In Praise of Love (Éloge de l’amour) is a 2001 French film written and directed by Jean-Luc Godard. The black-and-white and color drama was shot by Julien Hirsch and Christophe Pollock.
Godard has famously stated that “a film should have a beginning, a middle and an end, but not necessarily in that order.” This aphorism is illustrated by In Praise of Love (Éloge de l’amour), which reverses the order of past and present.
In Praise of Love polarized film critics. While some prominent reviewers were highly negative toward the work, others consider it to be one of the best films of its decade.
Plot: An author works on a project on the subject of love, and, in the process, crosses paths with a former love in his life.
Director: Jean-Luc Godard
