Une Femme Est Une Femme, Jean Luc Godard 

Loved the world of the movie. Has its own rhythm, logic and dynamic – a movie doesn’t have to be fantastic to have a world or a universe, it simply is a creative reflection of one’s mind. Loved the references to his own movies and Truffaut’s movies. The universe of French New Wave. Loved the part where they listen to music and don’t say anything. Not like a music video, you feel the weight of the song and what it means to sit and listen to a song with someone. Also the part where she asks him if he loves and he asks her back, but she says that it’s unimportant as long as he loves her (he cares to be securely loved) reminds me of so many people I know. Funny that not much has changed ever since. Loved the light transitions and the wink at the beginning of the film directly towards us. I can see the camera movement being iconic in many other directors’ films. It has impact because it serves the story, we are spectators more than viewers, so they are aware of our existence behind the screen too. Love the color design, always very clean and lucid, gives a message, palettes used together very well. Anna Karenina and her clothes, what a lovely woman.
