In Une Femme Mariée film we follow a married woman in different situations: at home with her husband and in meetings with her lover. The focus is not really on the plot but rather on relations. There is aso quite a lot of quasi-philosophical dialogue, experimental/quirky ways of filming (but not too much), sometimes a documentary feel, and sudden inserted commercial pictures of womens apparel. There is also references to other french movies (as when Charlotte walks out on the roof in her underwear saying "have you seen Fantomas?").
Une Femme Mariée is more like Godard's earlier movies, Breathless, Bande Apart and Vivre sa Vie. These are, imo, more playful and full of energy than later ones. If you like the earlier Godard you will probably like this as well, and vice versa. If you haven't seen anything by Godard, this may be a possible start.
The transfer of this MoC DVD is very sharp, I watched it on a projector and it worked excellent. There are no special extras on the disc, but a nice, thick booklet with essays. Recommended to anyone interested in french cinema and the 1960s french new wave.

Macha Méril is a a shining star in this black and white erotic jewel of JLG. Eureka! has again as usual spoiled us with lots of extra's such as a beautiful booklet. For me A Bout De Souffle & Bande A Part are my favourite JLG films however this one is not to be missed if you are fan of JLG's filmography.

Eureka does wonderful work once again. this DVD is an amazing product and well worth your hard earned cash. especially if you are a Godard lover. I have never seen this film and it really is one of his most interesting works. a real treasure. buy it!

WHETHER BLURAY OR DVD IS ALL RIGHT. SAME FILM, SAME BONUS MATERIALS(UHH...WHAT?), ALMOST ORDINARY STANDARD PACKAGE. IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO BUY BLURAY?
