Passion is a 1982 film by Jean-Luc Godard, and the second feature film made during his return to relatively mainstream filmmaking in the 1980s, sometimes referred to as the Second Wave. As with all films Godard made during this period, the "mainstream" refers more to their budget, casting and distribution than to their content, which builds on the radical aesthetic of his post-New Wave forays into video and essay filmmaking.

The film marks Godard's reunion with cinematographer Raoul Coutard, his most famous collaborator during the New Wave era; the last time they had worked together was on Week-end (1967), which is usually considered the end of the New Wave. Like most of Godard's work from this period, the film is shot in color with a 1.37 aspect ratio. Coutard won the Technical Grand Prize for cinematography at the 1982 Cannes Film Festival.[1] The film had 207,294 Admissions in France.[2]
