Venus Beauty Institute
This Euro import swept last year's Cesar Awards (the French equivalent of the Oscars). The world of beauty and self-image is explored through the lives of four strong, smart women who make their living practicing beauty at a Parisian spa. Angèle is a ravishing woman in her early 40s whose guilt over having caused permanent harm to a loved one is offset by a reckless series of one-night stands. Marie is a beautiful young girl whose guileless innocence brings happiness to an enigmatic widower. Samantha is a cherubic flirt who substitutes sexuality for companionship. Nadine is the spa's stoic matriarch who suddenly finds herself surrounded by loneliness and self-doubt. In French with English subtitles.
