Based on a popular sociological study of contemporary prostitution, this Brechtian social fiction follows Nana (Karina) as she learns how to become a sex worker. Beautifully composed and featuring one of Karina’s greatest performances, the film introduces some of Godard’s key themes: work and sex, the situation of women, and the invisible suffering of the emerging consumer society.
