Les Bonnes Femmes

Les Bonnes FemmesBBBB

(out of 5)

Claude Chabrol drama about the sordid night lives of Parisian female store clerks (how does this tiny store make money with so many employees?) One is trying to make it as a cabaret performer when she’s not at the store ( in an early appearance), another has an unfortunate attraction to really bad guys, and another has started seeing a guy who seems nice but might turn out not to be. The dialogue is bitingly funny, the photography hypnotic and Chabrol’s direction the sign of good things to come.
