seconded! For instance, Mme Mallory and Marguerite talk about the berries the latter picked.

I enjoyed many things about this movie - feminist or not. The relationship between the older man and woman (both restaurant owners) was deliciously feminist -- a strong woman, a peer-like relationship, interesting struggles & meeting, funny, etc.
Can't say the same for the younger people. The career focus is primarily on the male though it starts with pleasant peer like fun between them. Their relationship & partnership seems almost to come out of nowhere at the end -- as if her looks were all that mattered? She comes off a bit two-dimensional & unsympathetic except that he chooses her ….anyway.
