Storyline

Focuses primarily on three women and the (unseen) man who goes in and out of their lives. One member of this trio is a saleswoman with an open relationship that suddenly closes when she learns that her lover has been unfaithful. It seems that he has dallied with a book-dealer (her nemesis) who ultimately does not propose as much of a threat to the disillusioned saleswoman as a certain actress. Along with these three are several other females who interact with the main protagonists. Set up more in the manner of a stage play with changing scenes and acts. Written by J Grimshaw

The Women are Chicks!
15 November 2001 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Les Nanas is an oddity. A French re-make of a US film. More an updated feminist version really. The original was Cukor's 'The Women'. Les Nanas by Annick Lanoe stars some of 80's French Cinemas leading lights. Marie France Pisier, Odette Laure, Catherine Samie, Dominique Lavanant and a teenage Juliette Binoche. The story follows a group of women or 'chicks' who live and work together. Each of them has their own romantic entanglements but ultimately can only rely on their friends. The romantic part of the film is fresh (for 1984), but the comedy is a bit dated. The women are varying and energetic each with their own concerns and foibles. Fun and easy if not vital or original viewing. Les Nanas was on VHS PAL in the late 80s but has since been deleted.
