living in: a woman is a woman

by


A Woman is a Woman hits all of the best style notes – feminine and French but also subtle and cool. We’re no strangers to Jean-Luc Godard fandom here, and this early musical romp is no different. Following the story of a young exotic dancer who’s anxious who have a baby with her ambivalent boyfriend, you can’t help but fall head over heels, flaws and all.   –Amy Merrick

Angela and Emile’s apartment is a study in sweet simplicity, all white walls with a few fancy pieces and flea market finds thrown in. Feminine but not too fussy. Godard gets it right. While a love triangle made solely for the purpose of having a baby sounds like a truly awful idea, it almost seems like a small price to pay for such a stylish existence.
