2 OR 3 THINGS I KNOW ABOUT HER (WORLD CLASSICS COLLECTION)
What do you know about her? Indeed, who is she? In Jean-Luc Godard's seminal 1966 film, 'her' is Paris, 'her' is his lead actress Marina Vlady and 'her' is her character Juliette, her is physical love, the cruelty of neocapitalism, the death of human beauty, the circulation of ideas, the Vietnam war...
Inspired by an article on housewife prostitution, Godard examines the theory that those living in 1960s Paris had to prostitute themselves to survive. Shot through the eyes of Juliette, a housewife who spends one day a week in central Paris selling her body, the film is as much about the city as its chic, duplicitous inhabitants. 2 or 3 Things I Know about Her is a brightly coloured masterpiece which is as radical and modernist today as it was in its conception.
