A playful, sometimes insolent homage to French and American musical comedies, Godard’s third feature is, according to the director, a “neo-realist musical”, as exotic dancer Anna Karina vacillates between her lover (Jean-Claude Brialy) and his best friend (Jean-Paul Belmondo). Andrew Sarris looks past the Tashlin-pretending-it’s-Brecht surface, noting that the soul of the film is best understood as “a documentary not merely of Karina but of the sheer otherness of all women”. Featuring a knowing and evocative score by Michel Legrand and Raoul Coutard’s iconic colour cinematography.
