A Woman Is a Woman

1h 25m Feature, Comedy 1961

In an unexpected follow-up to Breathless, Godard rebounds with a playful reworking of the Hollywood musical.

Anna Karina is Angela, an exotic dancer who wants a child at all costs, but her lover Émile (Jean-Claude Brialy) refuses. Reaching the end of her tether, she tells Émile that she’s asked their friend Alfred (Jean-Paul Belmond) to do her the honours and that he’s accepted.
