Review:

Jean-Luc Godard's 1982 film about filmmaking, art, life, and love is an often stunningly beautiful work about a Polish film director (Jerzy Radziwilowicz) re-creating in tableaux vivant some masterpieces by Goya, Rembrandt, El Greco, and others. While Radziwilowicz's director is criticized by his film's backers for lacking a story, a number of actual stories take place among the characters working on the film--yet Godard keeps them all at enough of a distance that they can't take over his deconstructed narrative. As he often does, Godard calls upon the elements of filmmaking (and, for Passion, painting and classical music as well) like forces of nature, and then arranges them so that their powers are their very point. Passion may not be one of those ordinary, lightly accessible valentines to the art of making movies, but it has more fervor for the form than most directors could ever feel. --Tom Keogh
