Movie Info

Nine women meet every Wednesday afternoon for 21 weeks of group therapy in this entirely original, ultra modern probe into the American psyche. Six unhidden and unexplained cameras capture this fast and funny, deep and bumpy ride into consciousness as these dauntless women simply try to find a little more happiness. Punk amputee; born-again Christian; hypochondriac; sex-rocker; enigma; tramp; bigot; binger; and their therapist. At the center challenging them all is Pipi, the fat one-legged punk

A terrible movie that some people will nevertheless find moving.

The actresses may have worked up a back story for the women they portray so convincingly, but viewers don't get enough of that background for the characters to be involving as individuals rather than types.

The movie is pretty funny now and then without in any way demeaning its subjects.

The nine women are a touching reminder that we all have our own, very different problems, but by relating to each other, we can come to terms with just about anything.

Mastering its formidable arithmetic of cameras and souls, Group articulates a flood of emotion.

How many more times will indie filmmakers subject us to boring, self-important stories of how horrible we are to ourselves and each other?

For all its comprehensiveness and length, not really engaging and more than a little formulaic.

[Reaches] wholly believable and heart-wrenching depths of despair.

While the subject's appeal is limited and the film's 106-minute running time excessive, viewers who do respond to the pic will find it raw, real and cathartic.

It's usually a bad sign when directors abandon their scripts and go where the moment takes them, but Olympia, Wash., based filmmakers Anne de Marcken and Marilyn Freeman did just that and it's what makes their project so interesting.

All the time I was thinking 'Why did these gals volunteer for this hang-all-your-laundry-out-in-the- open confessorama?'

The surprising skill and compassion that Group's makers exhibit turns what could have been an uninvolving actor's exercise into a compelling and complicated emotional stew.
