Une Femme Mariée

Relatively minor Godard which, characteristically, plays off fictional form (a day in the life of an adulterous wife) against documentary moments (face-on interviews in which characters lecture on abstracts like 'Memory' and 'Childhood'). Another of his socio-sexual fables, in fact, curious for the way it was censored. Outraged by its mockery of Marriage and Family, the authorities insisted that the title be changed - from La Femme Mariée (Married Woman, a collectivity, a condition) to Une Femme Mariée (A Married Woman, an individual, unrepresentative case).
