Storyline

Can one ensure immortal love? Hippolyte, an eccentric notary, sees his marriage to Camille as his one great success. He also believes that love doesn't last, and this flummoxes him as they approach their 15th anniversary. To test her love for him, he promotes her seduction by an anonymous stranger, behaves badly to guests, makes love clumsily, sleeps in the guest room. All this breaks her spirit, and she asks him to move. It's devastating to Hippolyte, Camille, and their two sweet children, but he persists; he can't seem to shake this humour. Then, they reconcile and depart on a second honeymoon. Is this a renewal of domestic bliss or a an interlude in Hippolyte's mad design? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

The oddball cannot leave "well-enough alone".
12 December 2002 | by (Huntington Woods, Michigan) – See all my reviews

LE ZEBRE (The Oddball). Bittersweet romantic comedy about happily married Hippolyte (Thierry Lhermitte), a likable, clownish-yet-successful lawyer, and beautiful Camille (Caroline Cellier), a philosophy lecturer. Natalie and Lauren are their children. Hippolyte becomes overly obsessed, trying to restore passion into their marriage. He devises zany, secretive, amorous schemes to entice and arouse Camille. At first, she is flattered but confused, since she has many admirers. She then becomes irritated by the demeaning nature of his schemes. Gregoire (Christian Pereira), their close friend, often serves as an intermediary. Because of Hippolyte's capricious and somewhat sadistic nature, the ending seems inconclusive (at least to me). Possible sequel?, "Return of the Oddball"(?).
