3 facts about the film:

  • The film was an opportunity for the director to return to her own childhood, as she grew up in the countryside.
  • Catherine Corsini also wished to pay a lot of attention to the male character of Manuel, the partner of Carole. Indeed, he confronts her with her own contradictions, by pointing out her that although she fights for the freedom of the women, she becomes completely dependent on a girl she falls in love with.
  • Besides staging a love story, Catherine Corsini wished through this movie to pay a glowing tribute in the feminism, and in particular in these women who fought for the abortion right and the sexual liberation.

Synopsis

1971. Delphine, daughter of farmers, went to Paris to become emancipated and financially independent. Carole lives in Paris. In a relationship with Manuel, she actively lives the beginnings of feminism. When Delphine and Carole meet, their love story toggles their lives.
