“The quote “Il faut confronter des idées vagues aver des images claires” (one must confront vague ideas with clear images), appears as a writing on a wall the first minutes of the movie. We consider this phrase to be a hint by Godard to disclose a central concept of the movie. While the auditive part stands for the vague ideas of the revolutionary students, the visual level as the counterpart embeds them in a clear visual language.
The booklet adapts this concept by deconstruying the original script published in “l’Avant-Scène du Cinéma” Nr. 114, may 1971, by spliting up the “clear” and “vague” parts.”
