Our take

In her first series, with her usual inventiveness, Valérie Donzelli questions the figure of motherhood and approaches the delicate topic of the rights of women to choose what they want to do with their body. Juggling with the ideas of time, memories, femininity and desire, the filmmaker draws four portraits of unusually complex women, surrounded by colorful male characters. Deliciously insidious !
