    In Two Or Three Things I Know About Her Jean-Luc Godard beckons us ever closer to money sex fashion the city love language war: in a word everything. Considered by many to be among the legendary French filmmaker's finest achievements the film takes as its ostensible subject the daily life of Juliette Janson (Marina Vlady) a housewife from the Paris suburbs who prostitutes herself for extra money. Yet this is only a template for Godard to spin off into provocative philosophical tangents and gorgeous images. Two Or Three Things I Know About Her is perhaps Godard's most revelatory look at consumer culture shot in ravishing widescreen color by Raoul Coutard.

    This film is an amalgam of Henry IV parts 1 & 2 and also Richard II Henry V and the Merry Wives of Windsor. It's based on Welles' play Five Kings an adaptation of four Shakespeare plays which he produced in 1939 and again in 1960. The film's narration spoken by Ralph Richardson is taken from the chronicler Raphael Holinshed. Orson Welles plays Sir John Falstaff alongside an incredible cast featuring Margaret Rutherford Jeanne Moreau and John Gielgud. Welles is uncompromising as the tragicomic Shakespearean character and many critics believe this is the greatest screen portrayal of Falstaff.
