If Jean-Luc Godard isn't careful he is going to shoot his way right out of the avant-garde -- out of the idolatrous affection of all those cinema buffs who go for movies that are formless and obscure.
This is still Godard's view of life in France in 1964, and one of his most sociological films, as well as one of his most formally accomplished.
...a series of nonsensical, infuriatingly abstract sequences and interludes.
Godard commodifies his actors in the same way that the world of advertising does. So, because Charlotta is immersed in this world, she experiences life the same way, in fragments, snippets and whispered sound bites.
... effortlessly and damningly dissect[s] the ugliness of beauty culture.
One of Godards most formally precise films of the early 60s, remarkable considering the hurried shooting schedule.
...one of Godard's most approachable, conventionally plotted movies. It merges the director's interest in social constructs with a curiosity about individual emotions often obscured in his work.
... at the time it was one of Godard's most critically acclaimed films and remains one of the most financially successful films of his career.
The result is one of his most important and provocative dissections of modern life.
As Godard films go, it's not one of his best, but it stands out because of the controversy and his portrayal of sex, which is still quite subtle and erotic.
