A WOMAN IS A WOMAN / MASCULINE FEMININE

Synopsis:

Thursday, March 6th @ 7:30pm


A WOMAN IS A WOMAN (UNE FEMME EST UNE FEMME)

2014, Rialto, 85 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard
Anna Karina, an afternoon stripper in the crummy Zodiac Club, yearns for motherhood, but live-in boyfriend Jean-Claude Brialy "isn’t ready yet," while hanger-on Jean-Paul Belmondo is more than happy to oblige. Godard’s first film in color and ’Scope, and his nearest approximation of a musical, with cinematic in-jokes and anarchic humor galore. In French with English subtitles.




MASCULINE FEMININE (MASCULIN FEMININ: 15 FAITS PRECIS)

1966, Rialto, 110 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard
Literary lion wannabe Jean-Pierre Léaud chases budding yé-yé star Chantal Goya, then gets a job as an unlikely opinion pollster. A portrait of youth and sex, with the story repeatedly interrupted: A woman blows away her husband; Brigitte Bardot rehearsing in a bistro; a Swedish art-film-cum-sex-film within- a-film, etc., topped by Léaud’s probing off-camera questioning of “Miss Nineteen.” In French with English subtitles.
