farewell godard: film Odia Adieu Godard: finalist at the Cardiff Film Festival

A film by Odia titled Adieu Godard was selected as a finalist at the Cardiff International Film Festival in the feature category. In addition, the film has already won several awards. The online film festival is being held from October 28-30 in the capital of Wales.

The film follows the story of an elderly man who becomes a big fan of Jean-Luc Godard after becoming addicted to pornography. Jean-Luc-Godard is considered the pioneer of the French New Wave film movement that occurred in the 1960s.

According to the statement released by the producers, the film directed by Amarya Bhattacharyya is in competition with five other international films, and the result will be released later this week.

The title of the film, released on September 2, suggests that it is a tribute to Jean-Luc Godard, the legendary French-Swiss filmmaker, but it is not a classic example of a tribute to the author .

The film is in competition with various other Asian films, being part of the Barcelona festival in the official Panorama section.

According to Bhattacharyya, it’s a proud moment for them and regional cinema because they were able to take this film to “different corners of the globe”.

One day, Choudhary Bikash Dash, the protagonist, mistakenly brings home a DVD after thinking it was a pornographic film. Although it turned out to be the first film of Godard’s Breathless, released in 1960.

When the old man, Ananda, watches the film, he is drawn to the novelty and develops more and more of an obsession.
