Coup de foudre / Entre Nous / At First Sight (1983) DVD9
Coup de foudre is a rare French film with a distinctly feminine perspective. This is important because the film is about an intimate, yet platonic, relationship between two women, a theme which is seldom explored as thoroughly and candidly in French cinema.

In 1942, a young Jewish woman, Lena, marries a French soldier, Michel, to avoid being deported to Germany. Meanwhile, another young woman, Madeleine gets married to an artist, Raymond, who is subsequently killed by a Resistance sniper. During the Liberation, Madeleine meets and later marries another man, Costard. Ten years later, the two women meet at their children's school and find that they have a natural affinity for one another. They spend more time together and begin to make plans for the future. But as their friendship grows, the two women seem to drift further away from their husbands...
