What does that mean?
3 November 2002 | by (Portugal) – See all my reviews

What is a normal life nowadays? To be an honest law abiding citizen, living with his wife and kids, in a monogamous way and loving, protecting and supporting them? Or let himself be caught in the whirlwind of pleasure, respecting neither values or principles? In this movie a man in the space of 2 or 3 days is expelled of his home by a wife fed up with his infidelities, taken into a frustrated sadomasochistic session by his girlfriend, forced to witness the attempted suicide of his charming neighbor to whom he had revealed himself impotent in bed the night before and finds himself involved in a street fight after a failed attempt of reconciliation with his wife. And in the meantime he's supposed to plan 3 advertising campaigns for his boss in order to be able to go on holidays afterwards. The narrative process consists in the protagonist of all this sitting at a bar counter and telling the barman, his confident, everything that is happening to him and that we can see or course. To end it up he is also bankrupt and resort to hand on bounced cheques to the above mentioned barman for a value higher than the expenses receiving money in exchange. So this story is an ordinary one and the fact that many people live like that nowadays justifies the title (A Normal Life). It's no masterpiece but can be seen for lack of something better.
