Belly Dancers

80' (GER, ENG subs)
This is a story about breaking free of the restrictions placed on women, about the difficulties of menopause and the art of conquering the fear of aging.

Age brings wrinkles, sagging breasts, menopause and a drop in libido. All that remains is to accept our mortality. That’s what 28-year-old film maker Carolin thought, but then, in the middle of her quarter-life crisis, she discovers belly dancing!

Free of any inhibitions, once a week, Caroline's mother gets together with her friends and they throw aside their ordinary clothes to put on oriental costumes. They gyrate their hips and roll their stomachs and look wonderful as they do so. The highlight of the year for these women is just around the corner: belly dancing on the streets of Paris.
