After May (aka Something in the Air) is filmmaker Olivier Assayas’s (Summer Hours, Carlos) lyrical and reflective memoir of his own youthful wavering in the aftermath of the student-led protests that convulsed France in May 1968.
Something in the Air
“Godard's 1964 classic has the same garrulous, genial, almost insolent effortlessness of Breathless, the same feeling of jumping for joy and almost defying gravity on the way down.” — Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
“The epitome of New Wave pop art romanticism, Pierrot is as evocative of its epoch as a Warhol “Marilyn” or Beatles VI.” — J. Hoberman, Village Voice
“A milestone 'Everything is permissible’ moment in narrative film, Godard's fourth feature is a rocket from Pandora's Box.” — Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
