FILLES DE JOIE
Axelle, Dominique and Conso share a secret. They lead a double life. Every morning they meet up in their public-housing parking lot to commute to work together on the other side of the border. There, in a Belgium brothel, they become Athena, Circe and Hera. Ladies of pleasure, everyday heroes, each woman fights for her family and to keep her dignity. When one of the women’s lives is in danger, they must join forces to overcome adversity.
CINEMANIA's opinion :
Co-directors Anne Paulicevich and Frédéric Fonteyne gather a trio of splendid actresses: Sara Forestier (OH MERCY!), Noémie Lvovsky (THE GOOD WIFE, ONE NATION ONE KING), Annabelle Lengronne (NEW BIZ IN THE HOOD!). A chronical of the daily lives of three prostitutes both bleak and luminous, very well documented, honest and dynamic.
