2 ou 3 choses que je sais d'elle
Two or Three Things I Know About Her
Directed by Jean-Luc Godard
This is our seventh Godard film on The List and I feel as though as the years have progressed, Godard has cared less and less about plots and characters. Instead, his films have simply become platforms where he can complain about society. I enjoy subtle commentary, but this is getting a tad ridiculous.
The film is about (that might be too specific a term for this movie) Juliette Jeanson, a married mother who spends her days prostituting herself, seemingly to make ends meet. Occasionally the characters will break the fourth wall and ramble about this and that directly to the camera.
With Bell de Jour coming up, I can't help compare this film to other movies that address prostitution in somewhat casual, and not at all erotic, terms. It falls completely short of anything I have seen. I found the narrative structure to be annoying and pretentious, without revealing any cultural truths of interest.
I am liking Godard less and less.
Screenshot of Vivre Sa Vie can be seen on the wall.
