Movie Info

The frustrations of a constipated wife and her impotent husband are explored in this experimental film that was originally a video tape. The eccentric couple are quite frustrated by their bodies. Throughout the film many bizarre things happen. For example, to teach their children about sex, they do it right in front of them. The grandparents also talk to the camera buck naked.


Critic Reviews for Numero Deux

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Numero Deux, which is technically stunning, offers no answers, only paradoxes, but in those paradoxes there exists the possibility of increased self-awareness.

In many respects, this is a film about reverse angles and all that they imply; it forms one of Godard's richest and most disturbing meditations on social reality.

It's intelligent, often brilliant, and sometimes technically groundbreaking, but also infuriating, baffling, and even repellent.
