The friendship between two assertive Jewish women in Paris from roughly the late 60s to the present is the subject of this 1994 feature by writer-director Martine Dugowson. The French mainstream is going through a sort of protracted Marjorie Morningstar phase when it comes to Jews, basically finding them as cute as the dickens, and not even Dugowson’s occasional eclectic stylistic maneuvers prevent this semifeminist tale from periodically congealing into French middle-class boulevard fare. But maybe I just wasn’t in the mood. With Romane Bohringer and Elsa Zylberstein. (JR)
