4.0 out of 5 stars Une Femme Mariée, 27 April 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Une Femme Mariée [DVD] [Masters of Cinema] [1964] (DVD)
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.

"There are no special extras on the disc"

You could be forgiven for ignoring the trailer, but in fact it most certainly is a "special extra", effectively doubling as an ultra-rare Godard short. (He assembled it himself, and... well, let's just say that marketing clearly wasn't his top priority!)
