3 Women

Robert Altman, USA 1977, 124’
Images A Wedding

In a desert town, young Pinky, local mythomaniac Millie, and silent feminist artist Willie – three women dominated by social conventions – form a grotesque version of a family. Undeniably one of Altman’s greatest masterpieces.

Robert Altman

Distinguished director, screenwriter and producer Robert Altman was born in 1925 and died in 2006 having made several dozen cinema and television films. The breakthrough in his career came with the anti-war satire  MASH, in which he presented a community in typical Altman style that characterises his very best work – based on episodic narration and innovative montage of image and sound. Altman often uses irony to show how society’s traditional roles, social conventions and cultural myths condition people.
