Godard: One Plus One [Sympathy for the Devil] F 1968, R: Jean-Luc Godard mit Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, 110 Min, OV (engl.)
An exhilarating, provocative motion picture. The Rolling Stones rehearse their latest song, “Sympathy For the Devil,” in a London studio. Beginning as a ballad, the track gradually acquires a pulsating groove, which gets Jagger into a rousing vocal display of soulful emotion that Godard captures on film.
The film intercuts footage of the Rolling Stones working on the song “Sympathy for the Devil”; Anne Wiazemsky as “Eve Democracy,” sauntering through London in a gown as she is being interviewed by a TV reporter; and other scenes examining capitalism, activism, and political conflict.
