Director: Maïwenn Le Besco
“I can't take any more of your highbrow direction! I've done this goddamn scene 30 times!”
Actor-turned-director Maïwenn Le Besco's latest feature is a clever black comedy masquerading as a behind-the-scenes ‘making of' documentary, in which a film director (Maïwenn) follows her actress friends in their hilarious daily travails.
An all-star cast - including Jeanne Balibar, Julie Depardieu, Charlotte Rampling and many more - poke fun at themselves and their ‘glamorous' star lifestyles as they scramble for leading roles, fight for the supposed integrity of their characters and battle the inevitable march of age.
“A warts-and-all, or rather, Botox-and-all view of a coterie of mainly French actresses struggling with both a relentless industry and their own colossal egos.” - Variety
