Une Femme est une Femme (a.k.a. A Woman Is a Woman), 1961.

Directed by Jean-Luc Godard.

Starring Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo.


This isn’t just any musical comedy. This is a Godardian musical comedy.

“Émile and Angéla’s greatest flaw is that ‘They wrongly believe there are no limits to their everlasting and reciprocal love.’”

These words are printed onscreen at one point during Une Femme est une Femme (A Woman is a Woman). Angéla (Anna Karina) and her lover Émile (Jean-Claude Brialy) are in a rare moment of agreement when it does. For the rest of the film, they bicker. They argue and they fight and they quarrel, seemingly without end in that specifically 60s kind of campiness.

Angéla wants to have a baby. When? Now, tonight. Don’t be ridiculous, is Émile’s main defence. There is no foreground or exposition to their relationship prior to this discussion, »
