Masculin Féminin

Jean-Luc Godard 1966
France/Sweden | English and Sweedish and French with English subtitles | Format: 35mm | 110 minutes

"Jean-Luc Godard’s graceful, intuitive examination of the courtship rites of 'the children of Marx and Coca-Cola.' The boy, a pop revolutionary (Jean-Pierre Léaud), is full of doubts and questions. The girl (Chantal Goya) is a ye-ye singer with a thin, reedy little voice; her face is haunting just because she seems so empty – she seems alive only when she’s looming in the mirror toying with her hair…Godard captures the awkwardnesses that reveal – the pauses, the pretensions, the mannerisms. He gets at the differences in the way girls are with each other and with boys, and boys with each other and with girls. Not just what they do, but how they smile and look away." - Pauline Kael
