It reminds me of this film by Imamura, "the Ballad of Narayama":
There are words that refer to old people in a not-so-nice way in all languages I suppose, but in French, I can't think of any as derogatory as this one, and I don't know of any in English, at least that would be of a common usage in a group of people...
"Blue-rinse mafia"?... (An English friend of mine once used that when watching a busload of elderly people at a tourists attraction. I still find it quite amusing in fact )
