A Woman is a Woman (1961)

Notes: 7/16/11
Music cues scattered about to set the mood.
Lots of breaking the fourth wall.
Cool to see the streets of France in 1961.
Anna Karina is quite alluring.
Jean-Paul Belmondo is so cool.
Silly bits are rather charming.
Jean-Luc Godard clearly loves to experiment.
Lots of 180 degree camera pans.
Je suis une femme. Wink.

Review: B
Charming, experiemental little romantic comedy from Jean-Luc Godard. The alluring Anna Karina wants a baby, but her boyfriend Jean-Claude Brialy won't hear it. Karina then decides to ask Brialy's best friend Jean-Paul Belmondo. Godard plays with music and camerawork in a most playful way creating a frothy film that showcases Karina as a French beauty for the ages.
