51st Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019


Fortnight 1978, Feature film, 1h30


« Girlfriends » is the story about Susan and what happens to her when her roomate gets married. It’s a film about negociations – both persona land professional, told through an accumulation of intimate moments and events that are real, funny and sometimes sad. It was once a film abou how we look to each other to define and validate our choices. Now I think it’s probably a film about the adventures and relationships one girl goes through in her first years out of college. Claudia WEILL
