Deux ou trois choses que je sais d’elle

The prodigy of the French New Wave examines the banalities and tragedies of modern capitalism at a time when Paris – the “Her” in the film’s title – was undergoing a grand modernization plan with massive government infrastructure projects.

“Her” also refers to Juliette Janson (Marina Vlady), a suburban housewife who drops her child off at daycare in the morning and prostitutes herself part-time to make ends meet, but Godard’s non-linear structure is more of an essay as he narrates the film himself in an intense whisper, and spins off into provocative philosophical and political tangents. Hailed by critic Amy Taubin as the “greatest film by the greatest post-1950s filmmaker”, Godard tossed everything into the film: politics, war, sports, consumerism. In contemporary society, he observed, “the advertising element reigns supreme.”

Two or Three Things I Know About Her is co-presented by Hong Kong International Film Festival Society
