Completely in the spirit of the times with its retro etiquette, chauvinist jibes about women, and its 1960s football shirts, Let the Girls Play can be also seen as a “good-old-days” comedy in homage to the texts by Astérix cocreator, René Goscinny.
Sharp dialog and highly appealing cast.
LE JOURNAL DU DIMANCHE
A touching and amusing comedy with an impeccable cast (Max Boublil, Vanessa Guide), strong subject (male chauvinism), elegant vintage esthetic, and direction that stands out from run of the mill French comedies.
