      Ty Burr Boston Globe Beauty in this movie is squeezed out of modern life until it fills the cracks between the characters' feelings. Rated: 4/4 Jun 24, 2019 Full Review Robert Abele Los Angeles Times A thoughtful, probing exercise in erotic stagnation - no less engaging for lacking pulpiness. Apr 14, 2016 Full Review Calum Marsh Village Voice An extraordinarily rich and provocative picture in its own right. Dec 1, 2015 Full Review Jeremy Carr Vague Visages So what does A Married Woman all add up to? For one thing, perhaps a sign of what was to come in Godard’s ever-evolving methodology... Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Nicholas Bell A Married Woman reveals itself to be a rather terse but effective study on consumerism and gendered commodification. Rated: 3.5/5 Jun 24, 2019 Full Review Charles Mudede The Stranger (Seattle, WA) Godard's eye is as pure as a cello solo. Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      cem y I found it a bit unnecessarily abstract and the actors a bit dull. Shots were interesting and they might be worth deconstructing Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A Married Woman is an adulterous woman. There are lots of lovely shots of Charlotte's skin and lovers subtly stroking each other in soft black and white cinematography . For a woman who is getting laid a lot between her husband and her lover, she's a pretty lousy kisser - kisses that barely escape being air kisses. She spends a huge amount of time looking at bra advertisements while eavesdropping on two girls talking about one of them about to lose her virginity. You never see them, but she spends a lot of time thinking about and measuring her breasts in quest of the perfect pair. There's typically abstruse French discussions on memory, the present, intelligence, the theatre and the like. It's all quite profound unless it isn't. Johnny C sez it's worth a look. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Godard's examination of a woman and her two loves; fragmented and talky. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member One of Godard's most intimate films. A Married Woman captures a sensuous mystique through its alluring close up shots, and entrancing dialogue, that actually make the film feel a bit Bergman-esque. While the narrative itself is almost formless, the avant-garde structure, timeless themes, and sublime sense of humor make the film ably relevant for any generation. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Beautiful. Thought-provoking. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member This quasi-feminist film is easily forgettable. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
