ÉPILOGUEAbout this photograph
In Pierrot Le Fou, filmed in 1965, the colours are enchanting. Godard goes as far as to use colour filters for certain key scenes. The use of monochrome blue, red and yellow filters supports a connection or, on the contrary, highlights the incoherence, the dreamlike character. The film is dazzling and the blue and red colours are frequently associated. Red is Marianne?s colour and therefore symbolises violence and passion. Blue is associated with Ferdinand known as Pierrot. It is the bright blue of the sky and the sea but also the blue of absolute despair. In the final scene, the hero paints his face blue and commits suicide using primary coloured sticks of dynamite.

Georges Pierre’s aim with set photography is not to turn the moving image into a fixed image, but to recreate the spirit of the film, which requires commitment and personal interpretation from the photographer. With an average of three films per year, he has photographed more than a hundred films spanning a thirty year career which began in1960.
