Une femme est une femme (1961)
PG 83 minutes in French with English subtitles
(A Woman is a Woman)
Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
Starring Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Jean-Claude Brialy
A nightclub performer longs for motherhood and feels the time is now, then gets caught in a love triangle with her boyfriend and his best friend, as they argue, flirt, sing and vogue around Paris.
After causing a sensation with ‘Breathless’, the French New Wave auteur turned his attention to the musical and rom-com genres: somehow both sending them up and offering a loving tribute; at times bringing them down to earth with realism; at others indulging in a heightened style.
Toying with film tricks, sight gags, wordplay and the fourth wall, he confects a joyous treat: it has a charming score by Michel Legrand, and is bright with eye-popping pop-art colours.Godard’s most entertaining, exuberant work, he would later make ‘Le Mepris’ and ‘Pierrot le Fou’.
Winner of the special jury prize and best actress at the Berlin festival. It placed 2nd in the top 10 films of the year by the Cahiers du Cinema.
