Three feisty femmes – Magalie (Laure Calamy), Blandine (Olivia Côte) and Bijou (Kristin Scott Thomas) – play estranged childhood friends who tentatively reunite for a trip to the Greek Islands.
Recently divorced, and watching helplessly as her only son leaves home, Blandine is struggling to find her footing again, so when her former best friend Magalie, loud and fearless, suddenly resurfaces, she allows herself to be spontaneous for a change. But as they head off towards their destination, it is soon apparent that Magalie’s very different approach to holidaying – and to life – could lead Blandine to her breaking point… and beyond.
An unashamed crowd-pleaser with Kristin Scott Thomas getting in on the act and letting down her hair as a hippie jewellery maker called Bijou. The film emerges as a breezily delightful tale of female camaraderie, intermingled with laughter, tears and great scenery around Amorgos, where Luc Besson’s cult ‘The Big Blue’ was shot.
