Austin Film Society: Godard vs. Truffaut: A Woman Is a Woman
Not rated, 84 min. Directed by Jean-Luc Godard. Starring Jean-Claude Brialy, Anna Karina and Jean-Paul Belmondo.
Model-turned-starlet-turned-Godardian spouse Anna Karina seizes the screen as a contemporary woman who works as a topless performer and decides that she wants to have a baby. But neither of the two men in her life share her desires. The movie shows Godard re-evaluating the musical genre and almost at a crossroads in his development into either a sourpuss or a bouyant optimist.No current showings of this film.
