A Woman is Gleefully a Woman

The film plays off it’s rather cheerful storytelling. It builds entertainment with gags on all corners of the movie. I expected nothing less than a masterpiece after knowing it was a big budget film. Plot-wise, it had an interesting twist as Karina, a stripper decides that she wants to have a baby against the wishes of her significant other. What makes this plot interesting to me is that it builds the drama by Karina who then convinces Jean-Claude’s more than willing best friend Jean-Paul.

The movie I still would not consider a musical despite it’s singing and dancing instances. I love the truth behind the movie as I did some research after the film and found out that most of the actors wore their own clothing. Godard created this movie as a secondary feature to his first film “Breathless”. This film although entertaining lacks the cinematic innovation that Breathless had. It was however, a great follow-up.
