Description

A WOMAN IS A WOMAN Jean-Luc Godard's sly, playful tribute to—and interrogation of—the American musical comedy tells the story of exotic dancer Angéla (Anna Karina) as she attempts to have a child with her unwilling lover Émile (Jean-Claude Brialy). In the process, she finds herself torn between him and his best friend Alfred (Jen-Paul Belmondo). A dizzying compendium of color, humor, and the music of renowned composer Michel Legrand, this is young Godard at his warmest and most accessible. (1961, in French w/English subtitles, 84 min, 35mm ‘Scope) + PIERROT LE FOU Dissatisfied in marriage and life, Ferdinand (Jean-Paul Belmondo) takes to the road with his babysitter/ex-lover Marianne Renoir (Anna Karina), and leaves the bourgeoisie behind. Yet this is no normal road trip: Godard's 10th feature in 6 years is a stylish mash-up of consumerist satire, politics, and comic-book aesthetics, and a high point of the French New Wave. (1965, in French w/English subtitles, 110 min, DCP ‘Scope)
