Watching it, you can almost sense the way the world looked and smelled back in the heyday of the young Beatles and the dying Hollywood Golden Age.
This 1964 feature remains one of Godard's most appealing and underrated films, relatively relaxed and strangely optimistic.
New York Times:
Rialto Pictures is re-releasing the movie in a new print ... providing a chance to speculate on the nature of its peculiar appeal, which holds up remarkably well.
Perhaps Godard's loveliest movie, certainly his tenderest and most accessible.
The New Republic:
It's as if a French poet took an ordinary banal American crime novel and told it to us in terms of the romance and beauty he read between the lines.
Along with Raoul Coutard's radiant cinematography, what makes the film extraordinary is Karina.
