Sophie Letourneur, director and lead actress of the film, throws herself together with two of her friends – all filmmakers – into amorous entanglements at the film festival in Locarno. She shot her second feature film on a shoestring budget but with a lot of gusto for the cinematic experiment during the actual festival. The result is a “film-within-a-film within-a-film,” which never comes across as academic or boring but shows what cinema can still do better than any other medium: capture the spirit of a generation.

“Les Coquillettes” is fiction and reality, a narrative experiment, French low-budget cinema and “Gaul’s reply to Lena Dunham” (The Hollywood Reporter): but above all, an extremely humorous portrait of a generation.”
