All About Actresses

Gina Wilhelm Actress - All About Actresses

Writer-director Maiwenn's latest film is "All About Actresses." In it, her star-studded cast balances tenuously between hilarity and despair.

The French movie features musical-comedy sequences in which the actresses sing about their travails.

The conceit of the film is that Maiwenn is trying to film a documentary about her actress friends and focuses on her sessions with each woman, each with her own set of bizarre quirks.

Julie Depardieu farms chickens in the courtyard of her Paris home, while Jeanne Balibar attacks her director with a boom mic.

There are also tales of plastic surgery gone wrong and Karin Viard tries to break into Hollywood with a terrible accent.

It looks like a fun French take on one of my favorite subjects.
