Jean-Luc Godard wrote, directed, and edited this mind-boggling comedy. "The Idiot" (also known as "the Prince" and played by Godard himself) has been guaranteed financing for a film, if he can deliver it within 24 hours. But he encounters all sorts of hilarious problems as he attempts to do so. Meanwhile a pop group (Les Rita Mitsouko) works on a new album. (-DVD cover)

This episodic comedy is a brilliant homage to Jerry Lewis. Keep Your Right Up! features hilarious gags involving golf and travel, and some "ravishing images". (V.A. Musetto, New York Post)

With a tip of the hat to Jerry Lewis, Buster Keaton, Jacques Tati, and (for good measure) Dostoyevsky, Jean-Luc Godard wrote, directed, edited and stars in this mind-boggling comedy. The rambling plot involves a hapless filmmaker (Godard) and his attempt to meet a deadline for delivering a film. From there the movie branches out into an abstract, episodic structure. "…engages even as it baffles…The confusion that results, punctuated by glimmerings of understanding, is the point" (A.O. Scott, The New York Times).

Godard is having fun here (fun is not characteristic of most of his work). He's playing the idiot of Dostoievsky's novel, a director who won't compromise his work. As he did in One plus One with the Rolling Stones, he's working with a band, Les Rita Mitsouko, as they put together the various strands of their new song.

The lead character, y'see, is an annoyingly perfectionist film-maker determined to wring every last drop of the finest performance possible from his stars. No lengths are too long for this guy as he begs his players to put their souls into their performances. Perhaps it's an overdue, overwrought apology to the actors he's worked with, but Godard fashions a watchable, knowing drama. If you liked "Living In Oblivion", this is a good companion piece: it's not always the case that troubles are anyone's fault but the director's. (http://imdb.com/title/tt0094002/usercomments)
