New High-Definition Video Transfer

Three actresses prepare to go no the road in a theater production of Lysistrata, Aristophanes' classic comedy play about women and war. As they re-assess and deal with problems in their respective private lives, they recognize the parallels with the play and begin to realize that it is serious - even tragic - after all.

The Girls is actress Mai Zetterling's fourth feature film as director and is a key work in feminist cinema, presenting the eccentric, often funny and very positive way the three women's mind's work. In Le Monde, Simone de Beauvoir enthused, "All the images have multiple dimensions, the theatrical scenes reflect real life...Ironic and comic, this film moves us by the beauty of its landscapes, its poetry and above all its subtle tenderness."

"Lines From The Heart" (1996)
Christina Olofson's 73 min. film homage to Mai Zetterling that re-unites the three stars of The Girls. Lines From The Heart is about an unusual meeting of three world famous actresses nearly 30 years after they all worked together in The Girls. It was filmed in Mai Zetterling's house at Le Mazel in the South of France and gives a delightful insight into the heart of acting and their life experiences over four decades.
