WIN! The Criterion Edition of Masculin Féminin on Blu-ray

With Masculin féminin, the ruthless stylist and iconoclast JEAN-LUC GODARD (Breathless) introduces the world to “the children of Marx and Coca-Cola,” through a gang of restless youths engaged in hopeless love affairs with music,
revolution, and one another. French New Wave icon JEAN-PIERRE LÉAUD (The 400 Blows) stars as Paul, an idealistic would-be intellectual struggling to forge a relationship with the adorable pop star Madeleine (real-life yé-yé girl CHANTAL GOYA). Through their tempestuous affair, Godard fashions a candid and wildly funny free-form examination of youth culture in pulsating 1960s Paris, mixing satire and tragedy as only Godard can.
