The fact that the three main actresses and the director are women is something surprisingly original in a movie. And that the scene unfolds almost completely in one place too. This film is able to move with the deep dialogues of the characters to very different stories showing the problems of three women in their 50s with opposite personalities. The line that separates daily problems, disenchantment and tragedy is sometimes very thin. It gets you hooked on their dialogues and in the end the movie passes in a sigh. Excellent interpretation of the three actresses.
