Two or Three Things I Know About Her...
DIRECTOR: JEAN-LUC GODARD
CAST: MARINA VLADY, ANNY DUPEREY, ROGER MONTSORET
The film that famously located the swirl of the cosmos in a coffee cup, Godard’s all-out cinematic offensive against consumer capitalism uses the story of Marina Vlady’s housewife moonlighting in sex work to reflect, in one specific set of circumstances, a universal state of prostitution in the modern world. The director provides a careering, breathlessly contemporary running commentary, while Paris plays itself, by turns suburban drab and Pop Art plasticine, the scene and subject of a singularly bitter and beautiful work.
