Our take

Through her eyes of expatriate, Julie Delpy draws a singular, funny and impertinent portrait of the American society in her first series shot in Los Angeles, with Mathieu Demy in the role of her husband. A collective chronicle composed of women in their forties on the verge of a nervous breakdown. Her style is as usual very personal, switching between heated arguments and farcical brilliance, and hiding a deeper emotion about the time passing by and the staleness of relationships.
