With A Woman Is a Woman (Une Femme est une femme), compulsively innovative director Jean-Luc Godard presents a neorealist musical, that is, a contradiction in terms. Featuring French superstars Anna Karina, Jean-Paul Belmondo, and Jean-Claude Brialy at their peak of adorability, A Woman Is a Woman is a sly, playful tribute to -- and interrogation of --the American musical comedy, showcasing Godard's signature wit and intellectual acumen. The film tells the story of exotic dancer Angila (Karina) as she attempts to have a child with her unwilling lover Imile (Brialy). In the process, she finds herself torn between him and his best friend Alfred (Belmondo). A dizzying compendium of color, humor, and the music of renowned composer Michel Legrand, A Woman Is a Woman finds the young Godard at his warmest and most accessible, reveling in and scrutinizing the mechanics of his great obsession -- the cinema.

French New Wave filmmaking at its most playful, poking fun at romantic comedy and musicals. If you like Godard or Truffaut, this is an absolute must-see.
