Storyline

Chouchou has just arrived in Paris from his home in North Africa. He is scatty and unworldly, and tries to get a bed for the night by spinning an implausible line about being a refugee from the Chilean dictator Pinochet. He is fortunate, because a kindly priest (Father Leon) in a working class suburb has some sympathy for him, and takes him in for a few nights. Father Leon also gets him a job with a lady psychoanalyst, Dr Milovavich, and the job is as receptionist and cleaner. Chouchou does the cleaning in a woman's dustcoat and when Dr Milovavich asks him what he would most like in the world, he replies that he would love to be a woman from head to toe. Dr M. is unabashed by this revelation, and tells him that from tomorrow he can come to work as a woman, Mlle Chouchou. He takes her at her word, and is startlingly convincing the next day, with good female body language, although let down by a marked dark beard shadow. Soon the doctor has to go away for a couple of days on business, ... Written by Hazel Freeman

neo-french movie style featuring A.Chabat.
7 October 2003 | by (Strasbourg, France) – See all my reviews

"Chouchou" is part of those new french movies renewed up by some southern influences, but even though it handles transsexuality & homossexuality, the told story isn't very original, the " comedy " part requires the aid of the well known Yung & Chabat to give some energy to this movie. Still, we can underline the very correct acting performances of the main characters. The movie fits quite well in the entertaining-shirt. Not a high-flyer though.
