Jean-Luc Godard shows us the everyday life of a couple (loving, working) in its perfect banality: TV more real than life itself.
“Here, just as in China and Marx, human relationships always pass through the relationships between men and women. But the novelty of Numéro deux is that it’s a fully female discourse (by the producer of the film (Miéville), a little girl and Germaine Greer) that’s still being recorded by a man, since women don’t yet have access to material means of communication. When you come across tourists, look carefully: it will always be the man who is carrying the camera. Yet cinema, just as many other things, would not exist without women.” (JLG)
