Blier revisited his overlapping realms of seriocomic buddy movie and experimental flights of fancy, this time with young women; Charlotte Gainsbourg and Anouk Grinberg team as fast friends who blow through small-town restrictions before facing turning points including a health crisis. The supporting cast, impressive even by Blier standards, includes Gérard Depardieu, Jean-Louis Trintignant, Michel Blanc, Annie Girardot, and César Award-winning Jean Carmet.
