They Call It Spring
Directed by  Hervé Le Roux

Viewed at the San Francisco International Film Festival

I must confess: I am part French and love Moliere! There I said it…. But even so I was not amused by the costumed actors singing in verse about the characters troubles with love…. They were a bit of greek chorus but that got things off on the wrong foot and then it just got worse….
Have I seen too many French romantic comedies? In any case three women friends leave or quit their relationships and then play childish pranks on their ex’s. However these girls are incredibly unsympathetic: Joss leaves her husband and child for another woman, FanFan is kicked out of her house and finally Manu (FanFan’s sister-- where they sought refuge) is also kicked out by her husband for being a prostitute (or so it seems). They finally decided to get back to their relationships but I could not care less!
