Directed by Martine Dugowson
Mina and overweight, outgoing Ethel meet at the age of seven, and for the next 25 years
their lives are intertwined. They survive adolescence--the humiliations of an ugly
duckling childhood, their guilt-happy Jewish mothers--and emerge, Mina as a star of the
Paris art world and Ethel as a self-determined woman. Romane Bohringer and Elsa
Zylberstein deliver remarkable performances in a powerful, emotional work called the
"best foreign film of the year" by the Boston Society of Film Critics. French
with English subtitles.
