“That rare movie achievement: a work of grace and beauty in a contemporary setting...it shows the most dazzlingly inventive and audacious artist in movies today at a new peak.”
— Pauline Kael

Tagged ‘the children of Marx and Coca-Cola” by its director, MASCULINE FEMININE is about adolescence, sexuality, consumerism, and Paris in the winter of 1965. Centering on the mainly one-sided romance between a volubly ineffective young radical (Léaud) and a vapid pop singer (Goya), the film freely collages verité, parody, politics, interviews, trips to the movies, and random acts of violence. In French with English subtitles. 35mm. (MR)
