Les Bonnes Femmes is a French comedic drama directed by Claude Chabrol. Its mix of melodrama, absurd comedy and tragedy is typical for the early, experimental New wave films. It was one of the earliest and most revered films of the French New Wave, although it was a financial flop on its initial release.
