MUBI's take

A classic in Varda’s filmography, this film is as uncompromising in its portrayal of a woman who will not adjust as it is in its daring story structure. Winner of the Golden Lion in Venice, it is both a testimony to the director’s profound humanism and to her critical eye on our social judgments.
