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

I just saw the movie and I find it fantastic. It's all about having the guts to fulfill your passions, your fantasies, your ideals without paying attention to what others, society have to say about it. It proves that counts in love is not the reality, but ideas, desires and, most of all, faith! I mean, Alex certainly proves some kind of jealousy for Monique, a silicon doll. it also shows how much love is a personal construct and let people express their deep ideals. it's not about the perfect doll-woman; it is about Alex's desired Monique. don't go to see it if you are one of the 80% of American women thinking that their neighbors do nasty things and that only they, they aren't. and hold your moral, duty sense.
