Chicks

La vie au ranch

Directed by Sophie Letourneur
France, 2010
Drama, Comedy
  • French
  • English

Synopsis

Pam is 20 years-old. Her girlfriends are always found on the sofa in the Ranch, the apartment she shares with Manon. Talk, drink, smoke, dance: it’s their age, but sometimes you need to escape the group to trace your own path.

Our take

With her debut feature, Sophie Letourneur brought a refreshing breeze to French cinema by depicting the lives (and parties) of sassy young women. After a long period of rehearsals, and a tight script based on moments she had lived with her own friends, Chicks retains its vivid, strident realism.

Critics reviews

Through the cinema-vérité shooting style, effortlessly natural performances, and time-skip-aheads near the end, Letourneur effectively leaves you feeling like you’ve seen feminine youth itself encompassed within that hour-and-a-half—or at least her version of it.

I loved La Vie au Ranch because it resisted the pull of a grand catharsis or some dramatic defining event, which would have lessened it, made it cliché. Instead, we relax and follow these girls around at such an intimate angle that by the end, we know them, their rhythms, quirks, flaws, humor.

Ms. Letourneur’s film also bears a rare, even strange, stamp of authenticity.
