Synopsis:
Long out-of-circulation and unavailable for home viewing, Jean-Luc Godard's 1964 masterpiece Une femme mariée, fragments d'un film tourné en 1964 en noir et blanc (A Married Woman: Fragments of a Film Shot in 1964 in Black and White) has, until now, represented the ostensibly 'missing' key work from the first, zeitgeist-defining phase of JLG's filmography.
The feature which bridges the gap between Bande à part and Alphaville, Une femme mariée is, nevertheless, a galaxy, or gallery, unto itself — a lucid, complex, profoundly funny series of portraits, etched with Godardian acids, of the wife that represents either a singular case, or a universal example, of "a"/"the" married woman, and the men in her orbit. Designed with Raoul Coutard's breathtaking cinematography, Godard's picture captures a moment in time — but all its mysteries, its truths, its beauty, comedy and grace, serve to resolve into a work of art for the ages.

Definitive French Art Film - Une Femme Mariee review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
01/02/2010

This is a typically French film and won’t appeal if you dislike classic European cinema with the emphasis on art and cinematography. The story for what its worth involves a liberated female as its lead in cosmopolitan Paris. Macha Meril is the centrepiece and visually stunning as Goddard weaves his collage of themes, angles and fonts. I could have done without the whispering dialogue that crops up in segments or the uneven balance where the film becomes a visual piece of art more than a movie experience yet Une Femme Mariee is an interesting oddity and rarely seen but thanks to the Masters of Cinema label its now in high definition. The only extra is an extended trailer but the 80pg booklet with the retail version is marvellous.

intereesting, but - Une Femme Mariee review by tezza

this isn't the best pf Godard's great run of films in the '60s, though it has its points, especially in the quirky interludes. We see too much of the love triangle who are rather unattractive in a very French way - less verve and plot than usual, but a must see for fans.
