Une femme est une femme

Jean-Luc Godard France, 1961

JamesPC's rating of the film A Woman Is a Woman

Though this film was one of the least-successful of the New Wave films when it was first released, this stands, to me, as one of the best of Godard's early films, grabbing onto the viewer from the very beginning. Additional power comes from the music and the way that the music is mixed with the live soundtrack, with the music stopping dead when people talk, or the music serving as an exclamation point to the scene
