Agnès Varda's L'une chante, l'autre pas (One Sings, the Other Doesn’t) is a folk opera about reproductive rights, and I will admit to finding the songs pretty silly (though usually delightfully so). At least in Pauline (Pomme/Apple)'s sections. Suzanne's journey, from desperate abortion to working in Family Planning, is more straight drama. The mix of genres does help build up this relationship between two very different women, sisters more than friends perhaps, as they have children or chose not to, with men or not, in every way determining what's best for them, and not always without the regret that is implicit in making choices. So when I say this is a pro-choice movie, it's pro-choice in every sphere of a woman's life. It's about self-determination and celebrating whatever a woman might choice to be or do. It's all a bit on the nose and dogmatic - especially the music - but it's an enjoyable pair of intertwined stories.

This should be on more lists, it's really good and practically a feminist musical for fuck sake
