Jean-Luc Godard who died in September was one of the most influential filmmakers of the 1960s’ French New Wave movement. His filmography is extensive and his style idiosyncratic. Le Mepris was his commercially most successful film and a good one to see on the big screen (it’s filmed in Capri). Paul, a screenwriter is commissioned by Prokosch, an arrogant American movie producer, to rewrite the script for an adaptation of Homer's Odyssey. It’s part domestic drama, in which a man tries to find out why his wife no longer loves him, and part dramatisation of the adaptation process.
