Aroview: A modest beauty salon is the setting for this wry ensemble piece about the vagaries of womanhood, with an engagingly eccentric collection of clients seeking solace as well as service from jaded romantic Nathalie Baye (marvellous again) and her equally neurotic therapy collegues. Underlying the satire of modern Parisiennes is a subtly melancholic and honest study of vanity and isolation.
