Jean-Luc Godard is one of cinema's towering giants, a revolutionary who in the 1960s turned filmmaking on its head. As his ex-wife novelist Anne Wiazemsky soon discovered, the Swiss-born director, whose "Breathless" kick-started France's New Wave, also had a genius for making enemies.With "Redoutable," due to premiere at Cannes Sunday, Oscar-winning director Michel Hazanavicius has filmed the most politically radical period of the director's life as a comedy.At first reluctant to allow the director to adapt her memoir "Un an apres" ("One year later"), Wiazemsky believes Hazanavicius has struck gold.The events of May 1968, during which Godard brought the Cannes film festival to a halt with a strike, overwhelmed them.Wiazemsky was less impressed by Franco-British actor Stacy Martin's portrayal of her.
