Kehr’s Weekly Recap: Jonah — Who Will Be 25 in the Year 2000 (1976)

Jonas - Who Will Be 25 In The Year 2000

Alain Tanner‘s affectionate study of a group of 60s radicals trying to make the transition to the 70s. Tanner combines Godard‘s intellectual responsibility with Renoir‘s faith in the resiliency of the human spirit, resulting in a film that is both enlightening and encouraging. Funny, moving, and instructive, Jonah is that rare thing: a political film that speaks to the heart as well as the mind. Recommended (1976).
