Marie and Eric, a couple in their thirties who have been together since college, are buying their first apartment when Marie is suddenly overcome by doubt. Her encounter with a handsome, dark haired man forces her to make a decision and she leaves Eric to throw herself into a big sea of pleasure and freedom. But she actually ends up on at the bottom of the pool, where she discovers a world without pity: at her age, being single is quickly perceived as a suspicious and defect. Enlightened by new friendships, Marie learns to envisage her single life as a chance to become even stronger and to, at last, be ready to be happy.

And ode to womanhood and freedom aswell as people´s need for connection, friendship and sex, Gazelles is a joyous but generally also quite realistic next-generation girl-power statement that gained a few pounds but didn´t care one one

Fans of the genre definitely will not be disappointed

Like Bridemaids and the TV serie Girls, Mona Achache puts on our screens a new, gritty image of feminity.The modern woman is loud, forward and comfortable reporting her bodily functions!
