Sous Les Jupes Des Filles is a cheeky comedy about eleven lost and confused modern women (a housewife, a business woman, a girlfriend, a wife, a frigid, a lesbian, a lover, etc.) that stumble and fall but stand back up again. The film is sometimes crude, sometimes sad, but always sincere and never mean. That's why I'm upset with the reactions of many of the female audience who apparently still live in medieval times and judge the movie as being offensive (which it isn't one bit) because of it's outspoken sexual tone, but being a woman, I don't know how to talk about us without mentioning sexuality. Our hormones are definitely one of the reasons we are so "complex".
The movie presents a very diverse group of women that go through different times and difficulties in their lives, all of which don't meet but the film nicely goes from one scene to another with the main trade being their relationship with themselves, with their congeners and with their partners. As it's title indicates Sous Les Jupes Des Filles (Under Girl's Skirts) is about fantasies, not just sexual but mainly fantasies about life in general, which gives the movie a lot of heart even though it's playful. Apparently the French audience is finally able to laugh and accept mixed-race and mixed-religion marriage with Qu'est-Ce qu'on à fait Au bon dieu? (which, besides it's pertinent subject, is very mediocre in it's filmmaking) but not the sexual liberation and the equality of women and just their choice to be whoever they want (what century are we in already?).
The ending dancing scene lacks originality and seems like a quick way to end the medley of stories, the trial scene has no depth therefore has no sense, and the filmmaking is a little flat. Those are the only negative points I can think about. The entire cast is fabulous and beautiful.
What I liked the most about Sous Les Jupes Des Filles is that, as ridiculous as it gets, it never mocks the women, the audience laughs with them and not at them. It's a declaration of love to women, however crazy they are. What is there in this film for men? Lots of laughs, and maybe a glimpse of women's psychology which may help men understand them better.
