MASCULINE FEMININE
MASCULIN FEMININ: 15 FAITS PRECIS
1966, Rialto, 110 min, France, Dir: Jean-Luc Godard

Literary lion wannabe Jean-Pierre Léaud chases budding yé-yé star Chantal Goya, then gets a job as an unlikely opinion pollster. A portrait of youth and sex, with the story repeatedly interrupted: A woman blows away her husband; Brigitte Bardot rehearsing in a bistro; a Swedish art-film-cum-sex-film within- a-film, etc., topped by Léaud’s probing off-camera questioning of “Miss Nineteen.” In French with English subtitles.
