About the Film


As it tells the story of French female rock stars, this documentary poses the question: what if French Rock was born with Edith Piaf? In an era-spanning capsule, the film showcases everything from sweet sixties pop to the current gender-indifferent anthems, from feminist rebels of the seventies to fashion icons of the social media age, and voices from Françoise Hardy to Vanessa Paradis, Charlotte Gainsbourg and more. Narrated by Elisabeth Quin, Oh Les Filles! carries some rare interviews and iconic footage, as well as radical perspectives that promise to give the patriarchy a piece of women’s minds.
