Simone de Beauvoir called this ‘the best movie ever made by a woman.’ Inspired by their roles in Lysistrata, the Greek comedy about war and gender, three actress friends start to realise that their own relationships to men leave a lot to be desired. Rune Ericsson’s cinematography is as taut as the dialogue, as the girls intensely debate how comedy is really only a mask of universal tragedy.
