2 ou 3 Choses que je Sais d'Elle (Two or Three Things I Know About Her)
The feminine pronoun in the title of this film from Jean-Luc Godard refers to both a French housewife and the city of Paris, as each are changed in fundamental ways by the growth of consumer culture in Europe. Juliette Janson (Marina Vlady) lives with her husband and two children in a high-rise apartment block in Paris. Juliette and her family used to live in a working class community on the outskirts of town, but they've been drawn into the city in search of a higher standard of living, reflected in their new home and their desire for more of the latest consumer goods.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Two or Three Things I Know About Her is one of the most beautiful films of the young Jean-Luc Godard, a great French cineaste, poet and frustrated lover."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Despite an aura of wistfulness, and a certain power that accrues from the disjunction between the story of a vulnerable, life-hardened woman, the chaotic collision of sound and image, and the ham-handed political lessons, this film never moves me."
‑ Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
"The pinnacle of Godard's art. Probing, uncertain, hesitant, humble, lyrical and profound"
‑ Dan Jardine, Cinemania
"A marvel that equals anything in Godard's 1960s output."
‑ Christopher Long, Movie Metropolis
"Une réussite esthétique aussi improbable qu'absolue révélant une fois de plus les immenses talents de manipulateur de foule de Godard"
‑ Jean-François Vandeuren, Panorama
"Based on a series of magazine articles, the movie was made around the time Godard abandoned conventional narrative almost entirely for what he dubbed the cinematic essay."
‑ John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
"Raoul Coutard's Techniscope cinematography contemplates an espresso, filling the screen in monumental close-up with a rotating vortex of bubbles and foam."
‑ Nathan Lee, Village Voice
"a wide-ranging cinematic essay that may seem scattershot and abstract on first viewing, but rewards more and more with each repeated experience"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
"The dualities that abound in Jean-Luc Godard's 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her are ubiquitous at whatever starting point one chooses."
‑ Bill Weber, Slant Magazine
"... revolutionary, impudent and personal, and still Godard stops to admire the sublime in the ordinary..."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Seattle Post-Intelligencer
"he her in the title of Jean-Luc Godard's 1967 film is meant to be Paris. There is, however, another 'her.'"
‑ Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"Too good to miss."
‑ , Time Out
"From now on, Godard's films will become film essays and then cine-tracts. 2 or 3 Things I Know About Her is the dividing line."
‑ Paul Brenner, Filmcritic.com
"It's a vexing film that teases with sex and serves up radical politics. But it has extraordinary alchemical powers, turning the most ordinary environment -- a young couple's suburban flat -- into a minefield of ideas."
‑ Shawn Levy, Oregonian
"This is unashamedly intellectual, discursive, noodling film-making, a cinema of ideas, conceived in a language that is demanding, but not totally opaque."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
