Story

Violette is old enough to marry in 1852 when her mountain village is brutally deprived of all its men following the repression of the Republicans ordered by Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte. The women spend months in total isolation. Desperate to one day see their men again, they take an oath: if a man comes, he will be for everyone. Life must continue in the belly of each and every one of them.

Highlight

In a mountain village in which only women are left behind, with effectively no church and no police, the women come up with their own rule to overcome the situation. Shortly, one man arrives, and a nervous tone quietly spreads amongst the women. Full of suspense, this masterpiece depicts the women each restless in their understanding of the rule, in a beautiful golden landscape reminiscent of Millet's paintings. Directed by promising French female director who has experienced working under Michel Haneke.
