Time & Tickets

In UNE FEMME EST UNE FEMME, Jean-Luc Godard presents "a neorealist musical — that is, a contradiction in terms." Featuring French superstars Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo, and Jean-Claude Brialy at their peak of popularity, the film is a sly, playful tribute to —and interrogation of— the American musical comedy, showcasing Godard's signature wit and intellectual acumen.

The film tells the story of exotic dancer Angéla as she attempts to have a child with her unwilling lover Émile. In the process, she finds herself torn between him and his best friend Alfred. A dizzying compendium of colour, humour, and the music of renowned composer Michel Legrand, UNE FEMME EST UNE FEMME finds the young Godard at his warmest and most accessible, revelling in and scrutinizing the mechanics of his great obsession: cinema.

Jean-Luc Godard, France, 1961, 85 min. French spoken, English subtitles. With Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo.
