Sois belle et tais-toi

In this cult feminist film from the 1970s, actor and producer Delphine Seyrig interviews French and American female actors on the role played by women in the film industry. Would you have chosen the same trade if you had been a man ? Is there a place for an ageing actress ? Did you think of becoming a director ? From Jane Fonda, Juliet Berto, Anne Wiazemsky, Shirley MacLaine and many others, describe their professional experiences as a women, their roles and their relationship with male directors, actors and technical crews. Through these interwoven images and testimonies, Delphine Seyrig draws up a scouring portrait of a profession that generalises women into stereotypical and alienating roles.
