Politics and passion are often thought to be incompatible with one another. Jean Luc Godard has become a master at meshing politics and passion together contemplatively. Such connections have become a key feature in his films. The first time this is most notable is in Alphaville. Most of time the character is the main part in the story however in this film the city was the main part in the story. Once again Jean-Luc Godard showed the versatile characteristics of the medium film.
