A film by Serge Frydman
Housewives and mothers usually don't rob banks, as a rule. Unless there is an economic crisis, your husband has lost his job and the bank is about to foreclose on your home. Unless one evening destiny puts a thief right in your path, and you use him to learn how to go astray, where there is no turning back.
A film by Robert Guédiguian
Ariane, a middle-aged woman, is lonelier than ever in her pretty house. It's her birthday. The candles on the birthday cake are lit. But all of her loved ones have sent their apologies - they're not coming. So she takes her pretty car and leaves her pretty suburban neighborhood to get lost in the big
sunny city of Marseille.
