Our take

Vigorously interrogating the commodification of femininity in consumerist culture, Jean-Luc Godard’s provocative masterwork is as stylistically adventurous as it is affecting. Far from a scintillating arrangement, adulterous love affairs are yet another symptom of bourgeois ennui and listlessness.
