Church of Film Presents - Femmes Femmes


Femmes Femmes
Paul Vecchiali
115 minutes

Two aging actresses share an apartment in Paris, and a life. Retreating into champagne and fantasies, using the trade of theatre to dress a slowly unraveling existence, they try on feminine roles, and revisit the ones that have failed them. Paul Vecchiali's FEMMES FEMMES is a masterpiece of 70s gay whimsy and despair, a madcap and at times delirious spinout to the bottom and back, and to the bottom again. It's also a musical, when it wants to be!
