Ranging between Nice and Monte-Carlo, this comedy tells the story of a friendship between two young women with nothing remotely in common. Cécile (Judith Godrèche) is an ethnologist. She’s an intellectual and pretty proud of it. Alex (Aure Atika) is a gorgeous beach babe. As part of the fieldwork for her thesis, Cécile infiltrates Alex’s freewheeling bunch of friends, disguised as “Brigitte”, a high-heeled, fun-loving blonde.
You remember the sirens’ song in The Odyssey, which almost lured Ulysses’s ship onto the rocks? Well, the sirens’ descendants have polished up their tactics over the years and this is what “Bimboland” is about: how modern sirens learn to sing the mesmerizing song that makes jagged rocks look like a welcoming haven as sweet and gentle as a maiden’s arms, the ultimate vision of the Eternal Feminine. (Ariel Zeïtoun)
