The New Girlfriend (Une Nouvelle Amie)
Claire and David bond over the loss of Laura, Claire’s best friend and David’s wife. As they grieve together, they help each other become their more authentic selves. Like a French perfume, this psychological bender of a romantic comedy has crisp, floral head notes, heavy heart notes, and dramatic base notes. Prolific French director Ozon’s latest masterpiece wafts through the complexity of human sexuality from the intimacy and aching longing of female friendships, to transvestism, transgenderism, lesbianism and a mere hint of necrophilia.
