Product Description:

Famed auteur Jean-Luc Godard's fascination with the female race continues with A MARRIED WOMAN, an unconventional cinematic portrait of a woman who is at a crossroads in her life. Charlotte (Macha Meril) is a beautiful young wife and stepmother, who also happens to have fallen in love with Robert (Bernard Noel), a charming actor. While her husband, Pierre (Philippe Leroy), is away on business, she and Robert continue to spend time together in a hotel. When Pierre returns, Charlotte must lie in order to cover up her infidelities. She eventually learns that she is pregnant, forcing her to choose between a life with her husband, or a fresh new start with Robert. Shot in a series of extreme close-ups that mostly focus on Charlotte's flesh, Godard shows his obvious reverence for the female body. He also allows his actors the time to express their own confusion and philosophies--most notably in an extended dinner sequence. Godard's intellectual approach to male-female relationships, and especially the institution of marriage, is on full display with this influential drama, in a similar manner to the director's MY LIFE TO LIVE, TWO OR THREE THINGS I KNOW ABOUT HER, and CONTEMPT.
