My Life to Live (It’s My Life) (Vivre sa vie: Film en douze tableaux)
Director Jean-Luc Godard tries to remain objective in My Life to Live, but shucks, that’s his wife Anna Karina in the leading role. Karina plays a pragmatic Parisian sales clerk who briefly entertains the notion of becoming an actress. When this doesn’t pan out, she opts for the life of a prostitute. Godard adopts a documentary approach (with facts and figures about the prostitution business recited by Godard on the soundtrack), and at times it’s easy to forget that we’re watching actors reciting lines. It’s much harder to remember there’s a plotline, since the director delights in jump-cuts, sudden scene transitions and time-displacement vignettes which leave the audience breathless.
