Ciné-club Screens A Film on France’s First All-Female Soccer Team

Why We Recommend it

Hosted by the Alliance Française Hong Kong, the comedy-drama Comme des garçons (Let the girls play/Like Boys) (dir. Julien Hallard, 2018), will be screened free of admission.


Loosely based on a true story, Comme des garçons revolves around the early days of an all-female football team in the late 1960s.

Childish yet charming 30-year-old sports journalist Paul is forced by his boss to plan the newspaper’s annual fair together with Emmanuelle, a beautiful executive assistant. In order to get back at his boss, Paul decides to organise France’s first football match with an all-female team. With Emmanuelle’s help, the project grows to unexpected proportions, as does their romance…
