“Could be the single greatest work in the master’s entire career.” — J. Hoberman, Village Voice

“Perhaps Godard’s greatest feature.”
— Susan Sontag

The "her" of the title refers to both Paris and the heroine, a young mother living in a suburban high-rise who turns part-time prostitute to make ends meet: Belle de Jour in Alphaville. Mixing concrete social comment with dazzling phenomenological set pieces--a coffee cup becomes a universe, a cigarette tip glows like a planet--Godard fashions a caustic vision of consumerist society as a vast brothel. In French with English Subtitles. 35mm widescreen. (MR)
