A wealthy woman who winters in Saint Tropez leads an affluent but boring life. The bisexual woman meets a man she likes, but her former lesbian lover refuses to move from her home. She picks up a hippie girl in the Left Bank and seduces her back at her villa. The two are then seduced by a handsome young architect at separate times. The idle rich spend their time falling in and out of bed with little concern over the gender of their sex partners in this offbeat film.

Audience Reviews for Les Biches (Bad Girls) (Girlfriends) (The Does)
A rich businesswoman (Stéphane Audran) takes a homeless street artist (Jacqueline Sassard) under her wing, and initiates a twisted and deadly ménage-a-trois when her protégée's affair with an architect (Jean-Louis Trintignant) threatens the status quo. Such is Claude Chabrol's mastery at this sort of thing that he is able to reveal latent malice and emotional turbulence without ever once resorting to histrionics, and to create an intoxicating, erotically charged atmosphere without ever resorting to sexual explicitness. Although there's a palpable sense of impending tragedy throughout, I found the climactic 'Epilogue' oddly unsatisfying, lacking the sound, psychological underpinning of "Le Boucher", for example. Both of the female leads are fantastic; Trintignant avoids playing the stereotypical, sleazy seducer, but his character is comparatively underdeveloped and lacks depth. Jean Rabier's photography and Pierre Jansen's score are both outstanding.
