"Reines d'Un Jour" is a film composed of four subplots. There's Hortense, a speech therapist who spends the major part of the film with her mobile because she wants to spend the evening with one of her two lovers.

On the other side of Paris, a former chef on the telly Maurice is about to receive an one-time lover Jane but time passes by and keeps him waiting - Last but not least, Luis, a bus driver, learns on duty that his wife Michèle is leaving him.Written by
The thing about this movie is that it shows the life of French characters,in a believable entertaining way. It is entertaining if you are interested in how regular people with regular jobs would handle situations in France. In the film,there are some topics chosen about the few ( about five ) main characters which eventually bring them together. The actors are believable,the decors are ok (Paris streets,interior houses,cafe),the dialogues are smooth,invite for contemplation and contains the biggest weight of these three constituent components. Of course,its about a moment shot in life,so don't expect an end with all answers taken care of!
