Nothing too deep here, this is a fun romp with three more or less charming leading ladies who happen upon a stash of dirty money whereras all kinds of troubles and mayhem arise.
In tone this is close to some Coen crime comedies, especially the fact that there are no super-minds at work anywhere, the three ladies as well as the gangsters make a lot of stupid decisions, which makes "Rebelles" a rather realistic movie in that respect.
What keeps it from being an A movie is that the characters stay pretty flat throughout the proceedings, with the possible exception of Yolande Moreau's "Nadine"; you don't care much what happens to the other protagonists. But overall, very entertaining and fun!
