Excellent satire
18 May 2015 | by (Minsk) – See all my reviews

The country is somewhat of a mix between Iran and North Korea. It's like in many Muslim countries but in reverse. Men have to wear veils and stay at home while women go to work and run everything... Men's freedoms are very limited, even thought the state claims to be a democracy, and they are the ones being objectified and preyed on. Jacky, being a handsome young man, is admired by many women in his village. However he only likes the Colonelle and dreams that she selects him to become his rider( it's because the country worships horses so some jokes are about riding). The movie is pretty much a Cinderella story but in reverse and with a twist. It was fun to watch so 10/10 from me.
