When Margaux Meets Margaux / La Belle et la Belle (N/C15+)

Writer-director Sophie Fillières has a knack for making off-kilter drama/comedies about women under the influence, with films such as Good Girl, Pardon My French and If You Don’t, I Will showing them in various states of hilarity, disarray and despair. Her latest When Margaux Meets Margaux, portrays not one but two such characters — who also happen to be the same person. The winning duo of Sandrine Kiberlain and Agathe Bonitzer take up the challenge of playing a woman at two stages in her life: one as she enters adulthood, the other as she reaches middle age. Alongside the two strong leads, Melvil Poupaud plays Marc — an ex-boyfriend who pops back into the picture.
