  • Moves us now because it's so playful and the players are so young - and because later, when Godard tried to play for keeps, in his self-consciously radical films of the late '60s and '70s, he began to lose his game.

  • It is the work of a master -- of more than one, for that matter. Mr. Godard, who once called it "my first real film," was showing the obsession with, and mastery of, cinematic technique that would make him one of the culture heroes of the 1960's.

  • The most playful film to come out of the French New Wave, it's also the last time Jean-Luc Godard appeared to have any fun.

  • Godard's third feature film and his first in color, A Woman is a Woman is one of the most enjoyable of all the master's works.

  • More than forty years have passed since A Woman Is a Woman won the Jury Prize at the Berlin Film Festival for "originality, youth, audacity, impertinence." (When did you last see a movie that might warrant such an award?)
