Varda’s feminist musical is an effervescent tale of friendship and sisterhood. When 17-year-old Pauline – a.k.a. Pomme (Valérie Mairesse) – helps 22-year-old Suzanne (Thérèse Liotard) acquire money for an illegal abortion, it marks the beginning of a deep and long-lasting bond that spans major milestones in both women’s lives. Featuring musical numbers with lyrics written by Varda herself and infused with a second-wave feminist consciousness, it paints a richly nuanced and multidimensional picture of the struggle for women’s bodily autonomy that remains pertinent today.
