Les Bonnes Femmes is a French comedic drama directed by Claude Chabrol. Its mix of melodrama, absurd comedy and tragedy is typical for the early, experimental New wave films.[1] It was one of the earliest and most revered films of the French New Wave, although it was a financial flop on its initial release.[2]

Plot[edit]

The film tells the story of four single Parisian women and their domestic and romantic encounters.
