Une femme est une femme

Jean-Luc Godard France, 1961

Warren Spratley's rating of the film A Woman Is a Woman

Heart obliterated. Poses which never result in any kind of blossoming musical movement, musical cues which never lead to musical movement, an aesthetic, emotional, communal, individualist limbo, fastened supremely between oppositional elements. Sure, there's much distanciation, but the overall effect is thoroughly poignant. Vérité, working the frame, blistering montage sequences, sincerity: another Godard masterwork.
