On Capri, an Italian crew makes a German film of Homer's Odyssey; Fritz Lang directs with American money. Prokosch, the producer, with his sneer and red Alfa, holds art films in contempt and hires writer Javal to help Lang commercialize the picture. Against this backdrop, Javal's marriage to Camille, a young former typist, disintegrates. It opens with the couple talking in bed, she asking assurance that he finds her attractive. Later that day he introduces her to Prokosch, and, unawares, blunders unforgivably. The rest of the film portrays her, in their apartment and in public, expressing her hurt and change of heart and his slow grasp of the source of her contempt

Eine Frau ist eine Frau( Visual )

2 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in German and Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Eine Stripteasetänzerin will unbedingt von ihrem Geliebten ein Kind; weil dieser sich weigert, bittet sie den gemeinsamen Freund, ihren Wunsch zu erfüllen. Godards erster Versuch mit Direktton, Farbe und Cinemascope ist inspiriert vom Musical und von den Hollywoodkomödien der 30er Jahre. Godard kopiert jedoch die Vorbilder nicht naiv, sondern analysiert ihre Elemente (z.B. Musik, Farbe); ihn interessiert die erzählte Geschichte weniger als die Erzählmethode. Daher sprechen die Darsteller bisweilen direkt zum Publikum, daher erscheinen zum erstenmal gedruckte Wörter auf der Leinwand. Trotzdem wurde diese "Idee eines Musicals" (Godard) ein ganz und gar unernster Film. (Lexikon des internationalen Films 2000/2001 (CD-ROM)

1 edition published in 2008 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"How do we learn? What do we know? Night after night, not long before dawn, Patricia and Emile meet on a sound stage to discuss learning, discourse, and the pathe to revolution> Scenes of the May '68 student revolts, the Vietnam war, posters, photographs, and cartoons form the backdrops to their words, which themselves are often their subject, as are images, sounds and juxtapositions. Based loosely on Jean Jacques Rousseau's incendiary treatise, "Emile, or on education", Godard's "Le gai savoir" is a montage, a meditation, a reflection on ideas - and how filmmaking is a path."--Container
