There is a musical called Anna, which starts Anna Karina and Serge Gainsbourg (who also wrote the music). It was directed by Pierre Koralnik. Anyway you can buy it at Mod Cinema, or you can download it with English Subtitles as a torrent or without subtitles off rapidshare (just enter the code on the left hand side to get the full links). The full download is 700MB.
There are also some bits and bobs on youtube.

Also for pictures of Godard films (inlc. Anna) see: Good God Godard.
