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 comic and original french vision on midlife crisis
21 July 2005 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

I've just seen the movie, and it was quite a nice surprise for me. although it contains a lot of Hollywood-style touches, there are plenty of original elements to offer a comforting change versus the usual American comedy. without going into spoilers, i can just say that one must be French to put that much sex in a movie without making it boring an without letting it be just about sex. actually, the movie presents a rather common theme - midlife crisis for men - placing it in a rather forced, yet comedy-creating context. I think one should be more into the French modern lifestyle to get all the hints, but it's quite enjoyable even without it. another thing i just have to state is that Marianne Denicourt is drop-dead gorgeous, and her acting is not bad either :-). the support cast does the job pretty nice, but every once in a while you can get that "TV production" feeling, mainly because of the settings. All in all, a movie that can improve someone's evening.
