Gave this Godard film a watch over the weekend on the Criterion Channel. Not Godard's best by a long shot but it has moments of greatness. He seems to be trying to feel out the movie as it goes along, maybe less concerned with the narrative than making Karina look as good as he can, which he admittedly does well. She's very pretty here but more importantly gives a really good performance. I thought that the way that her character took to prostitution once getting set up with a proper pimp was interesting, she went from shy and awkward to very sexually aware in a pretty convincing way.

Neat camerawork, a cool score. Oddly abrupt ending, but somehow it worked.
