The movie was actually released in 1973.This is Remo Forlani's only effort as a director .He was essentially a screenwriter .
"Juliette and Juliette" jumped on the woman's lib bandwagon ;it is a timid self-conscious attempt.Annie Girardot and Marlène Jobert are left to their own devices ,Pierre Richard serves as a foil to them ,with his very straight family .
Girardot works for a chic magazine,"Penelope" and does her "Dear Abby" act with her advice column ;they elect their "Penelope 73 girl" (Jobert);then the journalist "discovers" what the "true" life of a clerk is and ,by publishing a nude male "playmate" in the central pages of her rag,gets fired.That's the beginning of the brand new world it's never too late to build.The two women sets up their own paper ,"Femmes En Colère" (=angry women).
The plea for abortion (which became legal in 1975) is unconvincing and superficial ;Godard -although I'm not exactly his fan,I must make amends- broached the subject in "Masculin-Feminin"(1966),and Marlène Jobert was in it too .As for the "angry men" in the final sequence ,they do not even rebel against war as a sacred duty for them!
