Storyline

A hotel for women-only and catering to working girls is the setting for not being able to get a USA PCA seal-of-approval for this French-film, but New York City's 55th Playhouse played it anyway. Along the way the audience meets the girl who sneaked her lover into her no-men-allowed room and her patch soon turns blue; a young lady with a passionate intensity who chooses another young lady as the object of her affections; the blindly-misguided director of the hotel, another lady of real easy virtue who is not the one who smuggled her lover into her room; and a girl who is only there as a procurer for a slavery ring.

Mildly entertaining light comedy-drama about women's residence.
23 November 1999 | by (Chicago, IL) – See all my reviews

CLUB DE FEMMES is a light comedy-drama about a women's residence similar to HOTEL FOR WOMEN or STAGE DOOR [minus the stage context and the witty repartee]. The 19 year-old Danielle Darrieux is charming [and gets top billing] as a dancer trying to sneak her boyfriend in "where no man can enter". More dramatic plot threads involve a tortured lesbian, a Danish gold-digger, and a switchboard operator who fronts for some kind of call-girl racket. Enjoyable for its fast pace, its generous acceptance of unwed motherhood [though not lesbianhood], and an elaborate Art Deco set. The director misses few opportunities to display cheesecake in bathing suits, nighties, and bath towels. The U.S. release print I saw runs only 88 minutes, which suggests some transatlantic cutting [this could explain some odd leaps in the plot].
