Jealous of the male friends she has she breaks up the friendship, followed by a suicide attempt. Later, Louise marries, but finds time to see the, by now quite accomplished actress, Nathalie. They fight through the years, La Repetition following them as their friendship comes together and breaks up frequently, while never actually reaching anything that can be called a climax.Written by
A moody bisexual actress and a suicidal lesbian dentist walk into a bar...no, unfortunately this is not a comedy. The two women, who have been friends since childhood, break up for reasons that are unclear. Then they get back together. Then they break up for reasons that are unclear. Then they get back together. La Rinse. La Repeat. This may well be the most mind-numbingly boring film ever to come out of France. Beart plays a stage actress who has no acting talent and who apparently acts in some of the worst plays ever written. At one point she develops a belly ache, but sadly no alien pops out of her stomach to breathe some life into this plot less snooze-fest.
