As a possible prelude, or even a prequel, for Hail Mary, Anne-Marie Miéville offers this brief story of family decomposition from the viewpoint of a girl named Maria. Godard’s collaborator and concubine Miéville works with a logic that’s not as character-estranged as the one of his partner, and it turns less to discursive battle than to traditional storytelling, echoing a sad beauty, especially when little Maria punches and tears apart the air by the rhythm of Mahler’s music and with her childish face frowned with impotence.
