Les Nanas is an oddity. A French re-make of a US film. More an updated feminist version really. The original was Cukor's 'The Women'. Les Nanas by Annick Lanoe stars some of 80's French Cinemas leading lights. Marie France Pisier, Odette Laure, Catherine Samie, Dominique Lavanant and a teenage Juliette Binoche. The story follows a group of women or 'chicks' who live and work together. Each of them has their own romantic entanglements but ultimately can only rely on their friends. The romantic part of the film is fresh (for 1984), but the comedy is a bit dated. The women are varying and energetic each with their own concerns and foibles. Fun and easy if not vital or original viewing. Les Nanas was on VHS PAL in the late 80s but has since been deleted.
