Godard’s “film in the making” dances merrily on the line between politics and performance art, as summer break for students turns to embracing Maoist principles in a shared apartment. Among the nascent radicals: Jean-Pierre Léaud, Juliet Berto, and Wiazemsky, increasingly determined to take revolutionary action. During filming, Wiazemsky and Godard fell in love; they were married just before the movie debuted.
