La Chinoise centres upon a small group of Parisian students who debate the cultural revolution in China and contemplate how Maoist principles and terrorist activities could be used to revolutionise Western politics. Starring Godard's ex-wife Anne Wiazemsky and Truffaut favourite Jean-Pierre Léaud, La Chinoise also features the music of Karlheinz Stockhausen and the cinematography of Godard’s nouvelle vague counterpart Raoul Coutard. La Chinoise is frequently very funny and was awarded a special jury prize at the 1967 Venice Film Festival.
