One Sings, The Other Doesn’t - 1977 - 6/10
AKA - L’une Chante l’autre Pas
Story of friends Pauline (later Pomme) and Suzanne, growing up in 1970’s France.
Suzanne had her first child at 19, by 22, when Pauline reconnects with her, she seems haggard.
Pauline helps with money, but Suzanne, desperately poor, does not use the funds as promised.
Instead, well, the tale turns. Pauline becomes Pomme, a struggling singer, and the friends drift.
The keep in touch with postcards, letters, and occasional meetings.
Lovely arc of friendship and maturity, with a sisterhood vibe.
