Simple Women

Simple Women

“Fear of a female planet?”: This is how the refrain of Sonic Youth’s “Kool Thing” ends, in the most emblematic scene of Hal Hartley’s Simple Men. Simple Women fearlessly introduces the complex universe of two women who come closer through cinema and get to know and lose their self – and all that remains hidden behind their public image. A young, restless filmmaker decides to shoot a film with Elina Löwensohn – Hal Hartley’s muse and her own teenage icon – in the leading role. An ingenious and tender game of reflections, with the magic and the everyday labor of filmmaking as a vehicle.
