Angélique is no stereotypical middle-aged lady. Even though she is the eldest of the nightclub hostesses, she still enjoys having fun and feels great in the company of men. Times change and the club starts losing clients, but the feelings of Michel, a club regular, remain the same. Having been blindly in love with Angélique for years, one day he unexpectedly proposes to her. The film, stylistically akin to the works of John Cassavetes, is a warm and sensitive portrait of a strong, free woman who chose life outside of convention and the rules of traditional society. The film is inspired by a real “party girl” - the mother of one of the directors, and in the film she stars as herself.

Marie Amachoukeli-Barsacq (1979), Claire Burger (1978), and Samuel Theis (1978) A French trio connected not only by work, but also – as they themselves put it – by a close bond. Prior to being awarded the Caméra d'Or for “Party Girl,” they made the mid-length film “Forbach,” which featured Theis' family. They are inspired by cinéma vérité and neorealism.
