    “Judith, Charly, Caroline, and Nanou, plus their men friends, are semi-Bohemians in Paris, avoiding paying rent, and encouraging each others’ efforts to make movies, produce plays, and play music. They tease, confide, share beds, talk, and drink with each other. Things may go on forever like this when Nanou announces that she’s pregnant with Luc’s child, and they plan to move to Marseilles. This is somewhat upsetting to Luc’s sometime male lover, but life and these friendships go on, with good humor.”Read More »
