First song: Comme un garçon, by StereoTotal
Last theme: Pocket Harmony feat. Moïra Conrath

The film encourages the viewer to reflect on women’s daily experiences in today’s society. Eleonore Pourriat reversed gender roles as a way to confront men with women’s everyday reality. In her opinion “men – it’s not their fault – they don’t imagine that women are assaulted even with words every day, with small, slight words. They can’t imagine that because they are not confronted with that themselves.”

The strengh of this movie relies on the reversal between gender, enabling men to understand better the phenomenon.
