"Is this a tragedy or a comedy? Either way it's a masterpiece"

Session Times



Welcome to one of cinema’s greatest ménage à trois. Jean-Luc Godard pays tongue-in-cheek tribute to the classic Hollywood musical with this playful meditation on the battle of the sexes. Exotic dancer Angela (Anna Karina) wants to have a baby but her lover Emile (Jean-Claude Brialy) refuses to cooperate. After a heated argument, Angela soon turns her attention to Alfred (Jean-Paul Belmondo), a long-time admirer and Emile’s best friend. As each character pursues idealised romance while simultaneously avoiding commitment, Godard too maintains a delicate balance between realism and intoxicating fantasy.

Why You Should See This Film

Witty and whimsical in equal measure, this film revels in luxurious cinematography, stylistic invention and effortless cool. This was Godard’s first feature shot in colour and, accordingly, each frame bursts with dizzying saturation and visual experimentation. Une Femme est Une Femme finds the young director at his most lighthearted and mischievous. Need we say more?
