Editorial Reviews

“Godard is to his medium what Joyce, Stravinsky, Eliot, and Picasso were to theirs.” –The Village Voice

Legendary French New Wave auteur Jean-Luc Godard reverses the standard love triangle and challenges the influence of consumer culture in one of his most provocative dissections of modern life.

Charlotte (Macha Méril) aimlessly drifts between morning affairs with the artistic Robert (Bernard Noël) and mundane evenings with her paternalistic husband Pierre (Philippe Leroy). Unsure of whether she loves either man, Charlotte discovers she is pregnant and must come to terms with her emotional infidelities.

Format:Blu-ray
1964. Jean-Luc Godard has had another success with his fifth film "Bande a part" (Band of Outsiders) and began his sixth feature film "Une femme mariée: Fragments D'un Film Tourne En 1964 en Noir et Blanc" (A Married Woman: Fragments from a film from 1964 in Black and White). The film which he began in June 1964 was shot in a four weeks, edited within five weeks and shown at the Venice Film Festival in early September.

Among the few early '60s Godard titles that have not been released in the U.S., fortunately EUREKA!'s Masters of Cinema (based in the UK) have heeded the call of cinema fans worldwide and have decided to release most of their Blu-ray's ala non-region (with the exception of a title or two that were released in the US by the Criterion Collection).

"Une femme mariée: Fragments D'un Film Tourne En 1964 en Noir et Blanc" is rather an interesting, entertaining and profound film by Jean-Luc Godard. Quite different than "Band of Outsiders" which preceded it and "Alphaville" which came after, this film is a film that can be seen as a sign of the times but still as relevant today.

Although I have not seen every Godard film made let alone any films he released after 1970 but I have seen a good number of his '60s films and I have to say that ""Une femme mariée" is his most erotic film. We see many shots of a naked back, a stomach, thighs as hands are seen caressing a woman's body. Visually poetic, Godard's film uses fade outs instead of his familar jump cuts. We see the negative utilized in Godard's video (which would be explored in "Alphaville") and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Godard July 22, 2009
By Z
Format:DVD
As a Godard fan I would rank this film ahead of some of his other higher profile films. It is a much more impressive cinematic experience than Le Petit Soldat, Bande a Part, Le Chinoise or Masculin Feminin. The story (basically a sociological study, not a psychological one) is concise and focused. Coutard's cinematography is surpassed perhaps only by Contempt and Prenom Carmen. What is truly amazing is this film went through pre-production, filming, editing to completion in under 30 days! The DVD has no extras but the transfer looks amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Obscure Godard should be much better known December 30, 2009
Format:DVD
I've seen a pretty fair chunk of Jean-Luc Godard's 60s output but there are still quite a few to go, mostly because back when I was seriously going through his stuff, there were many that weren't available, including the still-unseen LA CHINOISE, LES CARABINIERS and this film, which comes chronologically between the much better known BANDE à PART and ALPHAVILLE. It just showed up on R1 DVD a few months ago to apparently little interest, if the couple of reviews here are any indication.

I have to say after seeing it, I'm at a loss to see why the film has so much less renown than most of JLG's other work from the period, unless it's that it just isn't very funny. This is a very serious work, and perhaps Godard's most accomplished "feminist" (I use that word advisedly in regard to this director) film from his early period. Sure, he'd dealt with women as protagonists and in terms of their placement in society in VIVRE SA VIE and UNE FEMME EST UNE FEMME, but both of those films are closer to fantasy, and dealing with issues like prostitution, strip tease, etc - and starring Godard's muse of the time, Anna Karina, they read uncomfortably like male fantasy, however much Godard was on some level pretending to say something serious about the "women's issues".

Not so this film, which contrasts the two lives of Charlotte (Macha Méril) - with her lover Robert, a musician (Bernard Noël) and her pilot husband Pierre (Philippe Leroy), with whom she has an adopted son from his first marriage. It opens with a love scene between Charlotte and Robert, but not surprisingly a pretty unconventional one, showing hands, feet, close-ups of eyes and noses, etc - everything eventually except for the naughty bits.
