Critics reviews

Little in the film suggests that Godard had any particular devotion to the story, which, in its gleeful fixation on the effortless dragueur, or pick-up artist, mainly suggests the strong impression made by Paul Gégauff on the austere, conservative Rohmer and the romantic Godard. Instead, Godard’s directorial signature, his mark on the film, is its profusion of peripheral, almost encoded details: the film reads like a catalog of winks and nods to initiates, or rather, to his friends.
