Une Femme est une Femme (1961)

Jean-Luc Godard directs Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo and Jean-Paul Briarly in this romantic comedy where after one sap refuses to have a baby with his quirky stripper girlfriend one of their mutual friends tries to swoop in.

A pair of nerds squabble and neg Anna Karina for her heart. Very playful cinema but not much substance, pretension outways impact. Every woman is a stripper, in Godard’s world, ruled by her fantasising heart, so if there is substance, it is dully misogynistic. That doesn’t change how chic and magnetic and sexy Anna Karina is in a series of tricolour outfits. We aren’t watching for cod philosophy… non?
