Product description

Product Description

In Two or Three Things I Know About Her (Duex ou Trois Choses Que Je Sais D’Elle) Jean-Luc Godard beckons us ever closer, literally whispering in our ears as narrator. About what? Money, sex, fashion, the city, love, language, war: in a word, everything. Considered by many to be among the legendary French filmmaker’s finest achievements, the film takes as its ostensible subject the daily life of Juliette Janson (Marina Vlady), a housewife from the Paris suburbs who prostitutes herself for extra money. Yet this is only a template for Godard to spin off into provocative philosophical tangents and gorgeous images. Two or Three Things I Know About Her is perhaps Godard’s most revelatory look at consumer culture, shot in ravishing widescreen color by Raoul Coutard.

Two or Three things is Godard's "sociological fable", and amounts to a whole load of Wittgensteinian philandering with syntax and other oddly beautiful philosophising. At times it seems little more than an act of intellectual onanism; Godard venting his concerns in phrases of interminable length. However,
the sheer beauty of the piece on the whole and the genuinely bracing brilliance with which Godard whispers and composes makes it a definite contender for one of the greatest films of Europe in the 60's, if not all cinema. Particularly noteworthy is Coutard playing the prestidigitator and wrangling thoroughly bewitching images from the most inauspicious things.

Bought this on the recommendation of a friend. I love Godard's 'Weekend' but this one left me kind of cold. I found it really hard to become engaged with scenes like the one in the bar with people talking (and talking) and some guy reading random extracts from books (edge of your seat stuff that!). Too much chic and not enough sex (in a film about hookers too).

Jean-Luc Godard is a great film maker. I'm a fan, PIERROT LE FOU and BANDE A PARTE are among my all time favourite films. However I'm not a devotee who blindly worships all the great man's work. A good chunk of it is simply terrible.; TWO OR THREE THINGS is part of that chunk. It's awful. One of the most boring and singularly pointless movies I've ever sat right the way through. There is no plot as such but there is a good deal of political preaching and there is the most irritating whispered voice-over.
The cinematography is largely excellent although, in Godardian-style, some of the framing is a bit weird. Of course it doesn't help that Godard's muse (and ex wife) Anna Karina isn't cast, I think she was working on Godard's (far more interesting) MADE IN USA in the afternoons while he shot TWO OR THREE THINGS in the morning? If that's the case (I'm sure I have read this but can't find a reference at the moment) then it highlights how even a prolific film maker of Godard's stature couldn't pull off two accomplished films made simultaneously. Karina, one of the truly great movie actresses of her generation, might have made this a more watch-able film but it's incoherent story line and endless sermonizing gives it no chance of being any good.

5.0 out of 5 stars a cup of coffee is the universe itself 12 Mar. 2003
By Sarah_Aliza - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is not a movie to be seen once. After a couple of viewings it has really grown on me. The cinematography is so astounding. Do not be thrown off by the whispered narration. By the end of the film it begins to serve a higher purpose than simply aggravating the viewer (which is what, for me, it initially did). There are so many fascinating moments in this film both in terms of Godard's career and general film history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some undeveloped toughts on the film and the West 1 Aug. 2007
By Pablo Martin Podhorzer - Published on Amazon.com
2 or 3 things I know about her: my reactions
1. The city has not lost significance. The reverse is true: its significance has been artificially strengthened to conform to a new kind of commercialism: the reification of the non-physical manifestations of "post"-modern lifestyles. The city is now a Disneyland of its own former self plus all the imagined characteristics attached to it. Like I tought of before: what happens in Paris in the `60s is what happens in Bs. As. Only on the `80s or later.
2. Electricity and water: true, so true. But what we need is not in fact to forget the cost of things and use them as if they're free? To think about this kind of price all the time would make us crazy isn't?
3. The distribution of the city, Paris: well, we are seeing the results (2005 riots).
4. The colors and the play with them: the sixties look wonderful, so clean and so proper to human living: must have been a shock the intrusion of concrete at the same time of that colorful environment in clothes and artifacts. Now the concrete turns classic into browns and pseudo-old stuff (retro) and the clothes are more of a faded mode: maybe the fabrics are more important now.
5. The middle-low class woman prostituting: now they're the secretaries and so of the corporate world: the legal prostitutes, with their consent.
6. Camera movements and mise-en-escene: perfect in every frame.
7. The disconnection with the world and with others: crushing objectivity and isolated subjectivity: in the movie redention is possible; to transcend the frontiers language produce to my world (as in Orwell). I'm not so sure: the intent of the film when Godard doubts about the significance of words and how they are generated is to well for the `60s but passé after the fiasco of post-modernist tought: reality is back in social science. Anyway: the intent to redefine and show "a conversation" in cinema is utterly interesting, I feel engaged when I see this on screen.
8. A less educated girl at the beauty parlor: the technique os "semi-interview" is used, like in other Godards: we cant listen to the questions, only to the answers. The girl is so typical of her class: now she would be the same, but "liberated" of the need to acquire culture, call it Western or "high" or of the dominators: now capitalists have produced the illusion that they're free, that the low classes can have "their" culture and is all the same, all is valid: the result: no more critical books, no more critical cinema, no more critic, only big cars and prostitutes and garbage hip-hop: no Beatles here, where pop could be art. Popular now is only the filthy remains of culture's process of production for the masses.
9. How to show something that happens: the garage sequence. Interesting, but more for the film scholar, the interested in the problem of representation. Not for me, not now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Godard at his polemical best 14 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Before declaring "End of Cinema" in "Weekend", Jean-Luc Godard made this utterly fascinating and engrossing meditation on the modern consumer lifestyle. "Her" is Juliette, a married housewife that turns to prostitution to bring in money so she can buy the newest dresses, and also the modernizing Paris of the 1960s. You won't find the postcard landscapes of the Eiffel Tower or the Champs-Elysee in Godard's political and philosophical tract that takes issue with the suburbanizing of Paris with huge apartment buildings, perfectly captured by Raoul Coutard's always stunning cinematography. Also in the film: attacks on the US in Vietnam (Juliette's son's dream) and relations between men and women, and an exploration of alienation and the struggle for meaning in the (then) changing world of 1966. This might sound boring--me, I eat it up. As previously mentioned, this is one of Godard's last films before temporarily abandoning classical filmmaking, and his frustration with the confinements of cinematic form result in pushing the boundaries of narrative film. There's very little story, but the movie is filled with thoughts and meanings, and is one of the most personal films made by a director.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Transcendent film, truly a work of genius. 16 Aug. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
This is simply one of the finest films I have ever seen. Godard does things in ways that no one else can. It blends sociopolitical commentary with pure experimentation and existential realism. Visually specatacular and completely engaging while abstract and mysterious. A perfect film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looking to satisfaction 1 April 2010
By Michael Kerjman - Published on Amazon.com
A story of a wife bored with her Parisian routine, looking for solace in various sex environment while growing up offspring, working and satisfying her husband.

Shocking decades ago, it is a very average today viewing of days passed.
