Troubles in a small village
12 July 2019 | by zutterjp48See all my reviews

Some words about the story.Marie and her mother live apart of the village.Marie works for a lesbian farmer who exploits her totally, besides all the men of the village are harassing her.Her mother dies and then she begings charging for her sexual favors: of course all this respectuous men go to church every Sunday and are speaking badly about her.But her revenge will be very hard because she knows a lot of secrets about these men and their family. In this story about hipocrisy in a small village appears a sympathetic man, André, who shows films in the villages of the region and becomes a confident of Marie. Now some words about Bernadette Laffont (1938-2013), this French actress was "the face of the French New Wave "(she has worked with Truffaut,Chabrol, Jean Eustache), a very good actress. His friend André is interpreted by a very famous French actor Michel Constantin who has always had a great sense of humour.
