You gotta see this one!! This film is an extremely odd one for director Alice Guy. She was the first female director and you'd think she's push really hard for the public to accept women in traditionally male roles. Well, don't you believe it! This film is a tongue-in-cheek look at what COULD happen if women begin assuming male roles. Throughout the film, the men are very effeminate--wearing flowers in their hair, behaving as if they were gay and doing the housework. It's an interesting juxtaposition. What's also interesting is how the ladies respond. In a scene in a bar, the ladies make sexist advances at men who enter and they sit around drinking, smoking and carousing! It's all quite funny but I just can't imagine Guy having done this in light of her very feminist leanings in everyday life.
