Product Description:

Jean-Luc Godard revisits the crime genre with FIRST NAME: CARMEN, an offbeat drama that follows the unlikely relationship that blossoms between a criminal and an officer of the law. Carmen (Maruschka Detmers) is a sexy terrorist who plans to team up with her cohorts in order to rob a bank, securing enough money for her to shoot a documentary film. Complications arise during the heist when she is drawn to the bank's security guard, Joseph (Jacques Bonnaffe). The pair flees to her crazy uncle's seaside house, where they embark on a passionate affair. Eventually, Carmen's boss (Christophe Odent) arrives. He is a cocky criminal who won't allow Joseph into their gang. When they decide to rob a wealthy businessman and his daughter, a shootout commences and the doomed relationship between Carmen and Joseph ends once and for all. Godard's award-winning film recalls his earlier PIERROT LE FOU and DETECTIVE, two other high-octane crime dramas that successfully toyed with conventions of the genre, resulting in highly original works. Featuring the stunning Detmers in the title role, Godard's FIRST NAME: CARMEN is also aided by the supporting turns from Bonnaffe and Odent. Godard himself plays an aging, borderline-insane director.
