Alphaville - research

This is a link of a film clip from the french film; Alphaville by Jean-Luc Godard. This scene depicts Lemmy Caution and Natacha Von Braun discussing the meaning of love in Jean-Luc Godard's "Alphaville". Not much seems to happen in this scene in terms of physical activity, but the dialogue between the two actors presents a strong narrative on the subject of 'love'

Godard has montaged clips of film together, and certain frames are shown repeatedly, reverting back from one scene to another and then back to the first clip. So there is a sense that the clips become little motifs, that when montaged together create and effective narrative.

Here are some of the key frames, which give a sense of what is going on in each motif.
