Storyline

LA GALERE Winter 2007 To escape from the stress and tensions of their every day routine, four women in their late thirties, along with their seven children, decide to move in together for one year. Vero, Mimi, Claude and Isa are convinced that by sharing everything from the chores to all of their expenses, they can improve their comfort and quality of life while also strengthening their relationships with their partners, lovers and boyfriends: Yeah, right. Welcome to Vero's continuous whirlwind of a life. This disorganised mother of three (from three different fathers) is constantly running around with her cell phone and a coffee in one hand, a child in the other and a moody teen in the perpetual throes of some crisis always close by. In Claude's corner of the home we find a narcissistic mother always dressed to the nines in designer duds who prefers working on international development to actually taking care of her children or saving her crumbling marriage. Then there is Mimi, a ... Written by Anonymous

21 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a well acted ensemble piece that just grows with each season. The four women, Stephanie (not Vero), Claude, Mimi, and Isabelle/Isa, have single plot lines and their lives also intersect with the other women and with their children. The men move in and out of the plot but they too are multidimensional and important to the plot. This series is funny, thought provoking,sensitive, topical, bawdy, very Quebecois, and breaks a lot of stereotypes. The characters, including the children, grow weekly and we are exposed to the thoughts and behaviours of people from babies to elderly women. I cannot say enough about the series and urge people to give it a try.
