Germany Year 90 Nine Zero (French: Allemagne année 90 neuf zéro) is a French film directed by Jean-Luc Godard and starring Eddie Constantine in his signature role as detective Lemmy Caution. This is the second film in which Godard and Constantine collaborated with the Lemmy Caution character, although it is not officially a sequel to Alphaville. It was also the 15th and final time that Constantine would play his signature role in 40 years.

The film was screened in competition at the 48th Venice International Film Festival, in which it won the President of the Italian Senate's Gold Medal.[1]

The title is a reference to the 1948 Roberto Rossellini film Germany, Year Zero


Just after the fall of the Berlin Wall, Lemmy Caution roams around the city aimlessly. The film is part narrative and part documentary essay picture about German history and politics.
