Synopsis

Weary of their lot, ten women - all mistresses of the same philandering businessman - join forces to wreak revenge upon him. A comedy of reversed expectations, gleefully upending traditional onscreen representations of gender (the women here act and talk like men, while the men are weak, confused or ineffectual), it's shot in an exaggerated noir-ish manner - complete with multiple flashbacks and highly stylised visuals - that serves highlight the artificiality of its conceit.
