Amour de Femme

Paris. Jeanne (Helene Fillieres) is married with a young son, but she’s somewhat bored with life. Then she meets Marie (Raffaëla Anderson), an exciting dancer, and enrolls in her dance class. They flirt from the beginning. Marie is a lesbian, and Jeanne quickly falls in love with her.

Jeanne tells her husband about the affair and her love for Marie. Then there’s the usual dealing with the husband and his threats to take her son (who badly needs a haircut). Lots of angst and rejection by friends, but it’s a happy ending for the two women.

The film is filled with sexual tension and sensuality. Great performance by Helene Fillieres to create a realistic portrayal of Jeanne and her awakening to Marie. (AB)
