Dry Cleaning Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

This French-Spanish drama depicts a flat marriage that picks up a few new wrinkles. Nicole ([[Performer~P49536~Miou-Miou~mioumiou]]) and Jean-Marie Kunstler ([[Performer~P195199~Charles Berling~charlesberling]]) have run their small-town dry-cleaning shop for 15 years. When they visit a local night club, they see the brother-sister act of Loic ([[Performer~P232749~Stanislas Merhar~stanislasmerhar]]) and Marilyn ([[Performer~P197775~Mathilde Seigner~mathildeseigner]]), who perform under the name Queens of the Night, and the four soon become friends. Later, the Kuntslers visit Basel, Switzerland, where the siblings are appearing. They learn the team is splitting up and invite the bisexual Loic to help at their shop. He accepts, and his presence alters their outlook on life. Shown at the 1997 Venice and Toronto film festivals. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
