Adapted by Godard from Alberto Moravia’s novel Il Disprezzo, this film has often been cited as one of the best 50 films of the history of cinema. Screenwriter Paul Laval goes to Capri with his wife to work on the script of a Homer adaptation by Fritz Lang. The couple meets the American producer Prokosch there and begins to fight. Camille imagines that her husband is encouraging her to sleep with the producer so that he will get the job. The couple falls apart. Brigitte Bardot, who until then acted in light films that generously showcased her naked body, worked for the first time with a pioneering New Wave director like Godard, and the rare cinematic harmony between the two ensured the success of the film. Godard quotes André Bazin, the famous cinema critic: “Cinema changes our look with a world that suits our desires.”
