Generations of women
12 September 2002 | by Anal_FoamSee all my reviews

"Meisje" ( dutch for girl ) is the tale of 3 women at crossroads in their life. Muriel, a lost girl, breaks away from her home, her steady boyfriend and the socially crippling qualities of her home town, to gain and enjoy her independence in Brussels. She moves in with the uninhibited and lively Laura, a woman with a chaotic lifestyle and the growing desire of motherhood. Martha, Muriel's mother, follows her progress from afar, and finds herself breaking away from her routine and rediscovering a long forgotten childhood dream. Their lives cross over until they all meet up during a turbulent night. "Meisje" is a movie about the incredible power that drives women.
