Jean-Luc Godard visited the world of young folk to create his most humane film. (Review of Original Release)

What are people saying?
What are critics saying?
This document of youthful confusion has not aged one minute. If anything, its detached, discursive and sympathetic observation of the earnest foolishness of post-baccalaureate, pre-1968 Parisians is more acute, and more prophetic, than ever.
An excellent film, still as fresh as the day it was made.
Masterly by any measure.
Directed by anyone else, Masculine Feminine--one of three movies that Godard made in his peak year, 1966--would be a masterpiece. For the young JLG it's business as usual.
This witty and tender 1966 gem remains as timeless and fresh as ever.
Godard works with a bright style and a sense of humor and his pictures leave a cumulative impression. (Review of Original Release)
Speaks to the teenager in all of us.
Remains worth seeing as an achingly nostalgic farewell to youthful idealism, tinged with a kind of loving contempt.
