COMEDY | FRANCE | FRENCH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES | TV-PG
In these sparkling French comedy shorts, Isabelle Nanty and company present a lineup of the latest offenders from the gender wars. Nanty plays Judge Chaton from the Bureau of Sexist Affairs, middle-aged judge who casts a gimlet eye on the human foibles presented before her bench. She hears both sides, albeit with plenty of eye-rolling, and throws the book at the most delusional party. Before and after the hearings, she kibbitzes with her enigmatic, metrosexual assistant, Florent Charles.
