Synopsis / Plot
Paul is young, just demobbed from national service in the French Army, and dishillusioned with civilian life. As his girlfriend builds herself a career as a pop singer, Paul becomes more isolated from his friends and peers ('the children of Marx and Coca Cola', as the credits announce) and their social and emotional politics.

Critics' reviews
  • "One of the quintessential '60s foreign art films, a bizarre melange of pop music, revolution, sex, movie allusions and poetry."
  • "Godard's document of youthful confusion has not aged one minute."
  • Directed by anyone else, Masculine Feminine (...) would be a masterpiece. For the young JLG it's business as usual."
  • "An excellent film, still as fresh as the day it was made."
