Synopsis

Jane, Rita, Jacqueline and Ginette are all clerks at a light fixture and electrical appliance store owned by a flamboyant old tyrant. Their Paris is gray and unromantic. It is a world of cheap nightclubs and cafes filled with stale music and loud patrons. Uninhibited and rather coarse, Jane seeks only a man. So does Ginette, but she tries to escape the dull routine of her daily life by singing at night in a music hall, although she is terrified that the other girls will find her out and mock her inept attempt to play the sexy, glamorous chanteuse. A pretty, petite blond, Rita has landed a priggish fiance and is afraid his awful bourgeois parents--whom he sees as the epitome of culture--won't accept her. Jacqueline, the loveliest, youngest and most vulnerable of the girls, indulges in romantic fantasies about a husky motorcyclist (Mario David) who keeps following her.
