Death Is a Woman

Critics Consensus

One of the last times Godard could make film paradoxes with glee, A Woman Is a Woman is a mocking, genuine tribute to musicals.

Audience Reviews for A Woman Is a Woman (Une femme est une femme)

  • Mar 14, 2013
    A Woman Is a Woman is a very funny, observant, and unique comedy about gender roles and marriage, and one that is gorgeous to look at. It has a very interesting style to say the least, and a number of great scenes, my favorite being the ones in which Jean-Claude Brialy and the lovely Anna Karina silently argue with each other using only the covers of books on their bookshelf to call each other names. It's nothing too deep or heavy, but A Woman Is a Woman is nonetheless a very fun and enjoyable comedy from French New Wave director Jean-Luc Godard.

    Godard at his most playful. The jumbled score and dialogue make a one of a kind anti movie experience.

    On the surface this is Godard's most playful and funny movie. However, under the inundation of music (enough to make Scorsese blush), self-aware treatment of typical Hollywood comedies, the constant breaking of the fourth wall, and exceptional photographic beauty, is a feeling of loneliness. 'A Woman Is a Woman' is Godard's revolutionist take on Hollywood genres that is a masterpiece and a joy to watch. Anna Karina is a beauty. For a great double feature watch 'A Woman Is a Woman' then 'Punch-Drunk Love'.

    This film takes you on a down-to-earth roller coaster ride as you watch to learn what the true meaning of love is. As Angela (a practising night club stripper) is unsure of her love for her current boyfriend (Emile), she believes the only way to finalize her love is to have a child with him. He refuses and believes that they have all the time in the world. As she results to talking to Emile's best friend, she is now in the middle of a split decision between whether or not to love him. This film truly represents what a romance film needs to be. The title suits the film picture perfectly, the story is basic, yet beautifully told, the editing is unique, the comedy/tragedy shakespeare references are amazing and wonderfully interpreted, but the real thing that this has to make it such a classic, it that it has random moments of musical numbers that will make any audience member smile. This film feels like the best play ever made, placed on screen! "Une Femme Est Une Femme" is a masterpiece!
