There was little chance, in the year 1971, that Carole, a Paris Spanish teacher and feminist militant, would ever meet Delphine, the daughter of a couple of Limousin farmers. But they did meet and not only did they come across each other but they fell passionately in love as well. Unfortunately, Delphine's father fell victim to a stroke, and the young woman had no other choice but to go back home to help her mother run the family farm. Carole, who was so smitten by Delphine, couldn't stand the estrangement and decided to join her lover at the farm. But could feminism and lesbianism easily be transferred to the countryside and its standards of the time...?Written by
After a swim in the pond, the girls lay out to take some sun.
As Carole lays naked on the blanket resting her head on Delphine,
her arms are raised and we can see she does not have any underarm hair.
As the girls start to kiss and caress Carole's armpit is exposed again
but this time full of underarm hair. See more »
An enjoyable film, with some great performances; but less travelled country roads should be rather more bumpy.
While a far from novel story, the three female leads (Izïa Higelin, Cécile de France and Noémie Lvovsky) give pitch perfect performances.
Where this film falls down is in giving the two lovers, far too smooth a ride.
If you're fighting for freedom, surely the establishment would offer far more resistance? Here, the revolutionaries hardly seem to experience any push-back. There's one bump in the road, but that's really it.
