All the Boys Are Called Patrick (1959)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

Simple twenty-minute short from Godard about two female friends who meet the same guy on the same day but don't know that the dates they've set up for the next day is with that same man. This is a pretty good little film that moves along very quickly and contains some good dialogue and performances. I was really impressed with the two women in the film played by Anne Collette and Nicole Berger. Both women turn in strong performances and best of all is that they make both characters very memorable. Jean-Claude Brialy also does a fine job in his role. I really don't think there's anything too overly special about the film and it really doesn't even look or feel like the work of Godard but for what it is the film is worth viewing.
