I must say that the first time that I saw this film I was not prepared for it. I wasn't sure what to expect.
Technically it is a documentary, but to me it is almost like watching a stage play (if somehow Tennese Williams and David Lynch had ever colaborated on one). The way that these woman speak is at times very beautiful and surreal.
It is like a car crash in the sense that you are compelled to watch, even though you feel like you really shouldn't. It is uncomfortable at times, but it is also a very sad and heartwarming story of two "society dames" who got left behind.
I never get tired of watching it.
