Storyline

Alex (Albert Dupontel) and Claire (Marianne Denicourt) are living a boring and tedious life after years of marriage. They do not communicate to each other anymore, and Alex is almost speechless at home and without motivation and inspiration in his work as a former successful photographer. When Claire decides to leave him to live with her sculptor teacher, and Alex, completely wasted, accidentally orders an expensive and desirable sex molded doll called "Monique", his life changes completely. Alex falls in love with Monique, making all his fantasies come true, while his privacy is respected. His behavior affects the lives of his closest friends and Claire. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A pretty good movie
28 August 2006 | by (France) – See all my reviews

I watched the movie yesterday and must admit that this is a pretty good one, although not the best ever. First of all one of the good arguments in favor of the movie is the very fact that this tackles the common issue of midlife depression in a very different way than it usually is dealt with. Second, the "carpe diem" feeling is very strong. The scenes with all of Alex's wife's friends coming to see him and convince to give up the molded doll is extremely funny on the one hand, and added to this it is sooooo true, so close to what reality would bring such a situation to ! After all, the movie is all about going blindly the way you want to, without paying attention to common society safeguards. Alex does what he wants, although everybody think his having a relationship with a doll makes him some sort of perverse ans sick guy. Even more, he eventually decides to take his doll out, and show everybody that he doesn't feel guilty nor sick. He's even proud of this relationship with the doll, and therefore proves his friends' and wife's feeling that their "common normal life" is very good. You'd first think that he's the one who might consider himself sick, but in the end everybody around him gets interested into his new silicone girlfriend, and all of a sudden everybody seem to realize that their common lifestyle and everyday life is as boring as ALex first considered his own life. Everybody needs a Monique, that would be the last word of the movie.
