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

Very messy production!
31 January 2003 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

After nice French movies like 'Le Fabuleux Destin ...' and 'L'Auberge Espagnole', 'Monique' shows us that France can also make very bad movies. There are some scenes very funny in this movie, but they can't make the people forget the stupid story. The cast are doing their very best, it's a pity. 'Monique' is not a good movie, that's for sure!
