1. – Celine Camp, Eloge de l’amour (In Praise of Love), France-Switzerland, 2000. The ever bilious Jean-Luc Godard’s scenario went through four versions of trying, as Chicago critic Roger Ebert suggested, to “reconstruct an ideal film that might once have existed in his mind, but is there no more.” JLG shots tests in February 1997 with Bérangere until she fled his “fourth first film” (!) because of thoroughly humiliating scenes. Ironically, Godard had noticed Camp in Alliance cherche doigt, by an old pal, Jean-Pierre Mocky – who quit a role in this film after an almighty row with Godard… Planned over five years, another trumpeted “Godard comeback” flopped.
