"Mireille Dansereau's first feature was also the first Quebec fiction feature directed by a woman and was a considerable critical and popular success. Though not overtly argumentative regarding feminism (it is full of jokes and parodies and cleverly mixes styles, from direct cinema through lush fantasy tableaux), it is a thoughtful exploration of liberation, of sexuality, of friendship and, not least, of the overwhelming power of imagery."
