Annie, Jean, Claude, Albert and Jeanne have been friends for over forty years. But they are growing old and old age tends to be synonymous with reduced autonomy, loss of memory, illness, retirement home and, worst of all, separation. One day, one of the five friends suggests to say no to isolation and loneliness: what if they lived together? Written by
Great elderly yet comedic cast, refreshingly deep yet fun storyline, must see!
It is rare to see a movie that touches on the inevitable yet frightening stage of old age. Topics such as sex, independence, and life long friendships (as well as deception, jealousy, commitment) are weaved in and out this story. I loved each character and could easily imagine them in their younger years. Everyone looks so good for their age it's hard to believe that they were in their 70's and 80'S. Jane Fonda and Geraldine Chaplin make you do a double take regarding what a woman in her 70s can look like. Dancing and exercise WILL keep your body looking like a 20 year old. Im also surprised that this didn't get higher ratings. Great acting,great scenery, and underrated story. I had no idea that Jane Fonda spoke french. Who knew!
