    While it may not always be satisfying to attend these soirees, when presented with the talents for repetition and juxtaposition of precise details demonstrated by Ms. Letourneur and Ms. Adler, these social customs are fascinating to observe from afar.

    Les Coquillettes never comes off as an elaborate in-joke; instead it feels like a sincere attempt to convey what the very particular rush of a film festival, rarely seen onscreen, can feel like from inside the bubble.

    A chatty, droll and craftily conceived off-the-cuff story.

    You don’t have to be a filmmaker or a festival veteran to appreciate Sophie Letourneur’s tale of three women cruising for dudes at Locarno’s annual cinematic shindig, but trust us: It helps immensely.

    Letourneur captures film fests' buzz of self-congratulatory promiscuity but never makes the many parties and mishaps compelling.

    It's hard to ignore the fact that a substantial percentage of Letourneur's would-be character study is dedicated to concentrated Schadenfreude that's unbalanced and without any real narrative weight.
