Average girl movie with no twist!
27 May 2003 | by Frank Khi DouSee all my reviews

Advertised as being a trash version of Francois Ozon's much better 2002 film 8 Women, this comedy suffers mainly from lack of direction. Both films feature spontaneous musical outbursts from the actresses but unlike 8 Women, which basically is a whodunit, Filles perdues cheveux gras is only an average girl movie promoting friendship in troubled times. Those three twenty something women have a hard time falling in love, keeping a baby or staying sober, but together they will see the light... And light it sure is, but the comedy is kind of lost through a narrative which tends to spend too much time with one particular character (the young mother) thus bringing a certain boredom to the whole film. Only the set decoration and the visuals are sometime effective as they seem to modernize (or just copy) old Jacques Demy movies such as Les parapluies de Cherbourg or Les Demoiselles de Rochefort both much better movies.
