User Reviews

A true piece of jewelery
22 November 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

What an interesting story set in the deep France, in the middle of nowhere, in a remoted village where all men have been deported into war. We think here about THE BEGUILED, or SEVEN WOMEN, but in a lesser scale of course. A women's story and directed by a female film maker. Those women swear to wait for the next man coming and keep him for all of them, so that they can give birth....After LES FILLES DU SOLEIL yesterday, I am still amazed by another female'movie; But the topic is not exactly the same though.
