Like the Musketeers, these gals are feisty, fun and great friends… Our dames live in Paris and, on the first day of the year 2000, they decide to set the record straight. At 35, they've got beyond believing in Prince Charming. Their theatrical careers have stalled and their slim billfolds contain but a smile and a tear. One of them, who works at the Concorde check-in counter, becomes a "seventh heaven switchgirl," and gives her girlfriends the chance to be in the right place at the right time. They'll perform the best comedy there is… love, for a private, very rewarding audience. To win their captive audience, they'll resort to using the ultimate weapon, the oldest one in humanity's history: seduction. The stage will be between heaven and earth. In barely a few hours (the time it takes to go from Paris to New York), the wealthiest men in the world will come to know the vertigo of supersonic love at first sight. During the run of this screwball comedy, true and false love affairs will fight for billing. In a world where progress has been made in every domain except for love, a group of young women will undertake to modernize emotional commerce by speculating on the engagement period. But once you veer from the beaten path, you run a high risk of winding up either in prison or getting top billing. It's often just a few steps from the shadows to the limelight, and Superintendent Bayard de la Mondaine and his Vice Squad, may just help you take them…

"I got the idea for this film on the Concorde! One day I was flying alone, when a very, very chic lady asked if she could change places and sit next to me. With a flimsy excuse. She obviously didn’t find me rich enough, because she then decided to tell me about her career – which was flying the Concorde! Not to get to Paris or New York, but to meet millionaires. She said that she always earned the cost of her plane ticket. Since I enjoy gossip and love tales, I realized she had a terrific story if I just embellished it a little. But without that lady, this film would never have been made."
Claude Lelouch, director
