A Woman Is a Woman

A Woman is a Woman

Jean-Luc Godard's gleeful 1961 experiment with the musical genre has a strip tease artist falling out with her yuppie boyfriend after he refuses to have a baby with her. The whole thing plays like a crazed sitcom and spends all its time poking fun at the Hollywood musical genre rather than actually singing and dancing. It's all a bit too self-conscious, but film fans should enjoy this brazen cinematic deconstruction. This newly restored print showcases the film's bold, Pop Art sensibility. In French with English subtitles. See also: I Like to Watch (Instantly): Breathless, A Woman Is a Woman (12/01/2010). 85 minutes
