The feature film knew how to characterize the feminist role, as we see female main characters that dominate an area predominately male, through a time when your image was constantly decreased, with well placed scenes by Berloff and, with the good old fellowship of partners in crime, the movie mixes the genres of drama, comedy and suspense and may surprise the viewer with scenes worthy of gangster movies, manifesting the strength of the three characters over the gangster they deal with in the plot. The director also didn’t spare dramatic scenes between the protagonists and their husbands, creating a pleasant climate between some violent scenes, which doesn’t make the movie appealing.
