Two or Three Things I Know About Her was based on a newspaper report about suburban housewives turning to prostitution to pay for their latest consumer goods. Punctuated by close-ups of soap boxes and everyday items - the ‘cosmos in a coffee cup’ sequence is legendary - Godard's vision of a world in which ‘dead objects are always alive and live people are already dead’ focuses on the daily routine of a housewife-cum-prostitute who moves between husband, pimp and john, kitchen, cafe and whorehouse with studied indifference. The ‘her’ of the title is also Paris, which was undergoing traumatic urban renewal at the time.
