This is a fine film, a black and white beauty from 1966 that is full of the art and wit and audacity of Godard at his best. I have seen a couple of reviews on Amazon where the film created a negative impression, so you may have to be interested in JLG's art to appreciate it perhaps. But I would rank it alongside Une Femme Est Une Femme as one of his finest and most endearing films. It is a melange of an experimental love story, an experimental contemporary social study of the concerns among youngsters over LBJ's attacking of North Vietnam the year before, and an experiment in cinema art, all of which is beautifully accomplished. It is not pretentious however, any more than any of Godard's films. It manages to make the trendiness of the mid-60s still look trendy.

For a private film circle. I have recently seen all films by Jean-Luc Godard again. If we wanted to show all best Godard movies of his essentially Nouvelle Vague phase, I concluded, Masculin, féminin (1966) would be his film if we could only show one of his films.

In the following, I established a hierarchy in the evaluation process, with x from 1, via 2, 3 and 5 Godard's, to cumulatively 11 in all.

x=1 Essential Godard: Masculin, féminin (1966),
x=2 Godard A-Z: À bout de souffle (1960), Prénom Carmen (1983),
x=3 Godard stars: Vivre sa vie (1962), Le mépris (1963), Alphaville (1965),
x=5 Godard politique: La bande à part (1964), Made in U.S.A.(1966),
Deux ou trois choses ... (1966), La Chinoise (1967), Week-End (1967).

The various x layers have tried to bundle Godard's production: After the base case, come his first and last of the series (hence A and Z), one step further his star movies (Anna Karina, Brigitte Bardot, Eddie Constantine), then finally his political set of five.

Some Godard fans - I am one since 1960 (sic), but not the only one, I am well aware - will miss Pierrot le fou, Une femme mariée, others on the list, and may object to my No 1. In any case, all eleven of the complete list are worth seeing again, perhaps in the suggested order.

The dvd copy in original black and white is very acceptable. Given that many outside noises came in rather crudely when recording, sound is also ok. So if you haven't yet, go for it!

PS For those who miss Jean-Paul Belmondo in Pierrot le fou, I suggest to hunt for one early Godard short - Charlotte et son Jules.

Like most of Godards film, it is, as title says, unconventional and provocative, and might by some be viewed as a cold empty shell.
Personally, I find it very stimulating. The main theme is the relationship between women and men, with emphasis on the fight for power in relationships. The sexes are somewhat like caricatures - the male are small-time/pseudo-revolutionairies, who are desperately wanting the women, whereas the women, with the new sense of freedom that emerged in the 60s, are laid-back, hard to get and slightly materialistic (and also, in this film, - and especially Chantal Goya - absolutely gorgeous). The caracters are very self-aware, but that doesn't keep us from getting new insights into human relationships. There is a lot of dialogue, often stylized, in the form of questionaires.

I would guess what Godard is aiming at is giving a portrait of the mid-60s young generation, a generation very distinct from all that came before. Whether he made it or not, it is a film that leaves you thinking, and makes you want to get hold of a time machine and see if this was really what was going on. Witness the spark of "15 minutes of fame", a 60's pioneer for such films as Sofia Coppolas "Bling Ring" (2013).

As a fan of french films of that period i found the film irratatingly pretentious. The characters are especially unlikeable (maybe intentional), the conversations between the characters just boring and the clanging noises throughout made my nerves jingle and my ears ring. it was a releif to get out the cinema.
