OF WOMEN (1988)
Drama 1 hr 48min.
During World War II, in occupied France, a woman of
limited schooling raises two children in a ratty flat. She
is Marie Latour. In 1941, her husband Paul returns from
the front, too weak to hold a job. Marie discovers she can
make money performing abortions, using a soapy water
douche. Many of her clients are knocked up by occupying
Germans. She buys better food and clothes, looks for a new
flat, and, through an acquaintance who is a prostitute,
rents out her bedrooms to hookers during the day. She's
indifferent to Paul; his humiliations grow as does her
income. She hopes to be a singer. Male Vichy umbrage and
moral hypocrisy may upend her. What is she thinking?
