Storyline

The story of a broke but talented composer, Mike, and his search for true love. The question is, how to find it, especially when your insecurities tends to make you jealous even when a girlfriend strokes your cat. Mike's alcoholic writer father who believes all his ills will be cured by finding his runaway wife, tells him there is only one thing that makes life worth living: "the empress"; perfect sex that goes on for days with a woman so beautiful you could cry. To Mike, however, the empress is love that lasts forever, not sex that lasts for days. Written by Anette Rosberg <anette.rosberg@malmo.se>

An unique blend of humor, common masculine vulnerability and future hope
16 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

This movie undoubtedly immediately recalls feelings of vulnerability that is recognizable for most men, regardless of where they live. Although the story of this movie is not very original (indeed, fear of rejection in love is not a rarity in any movie at all), the way he expresses his feelings of desire and vulnerability are both very witty and touching in a no nonsense way. Even an actor such as Hugh Grant doesn't show his emotions of insecurity and sorrow so intensely as Mike does.

In general, in a vast majorities of the movies ever made, men show their emotions far less intense in very probing love scenes, contrary to most women do in movies. In spite of this, many men all over the world undoubtedly often feel the pain of love as intense as Mike does often without openly showing it neither verbal nor non verbal. Therefore, this movie has remained with me all along: this movie is a nutshell for every man who want direct recognition of repressed feelings about the pain of love. Finally, I think the way Mike deals with the ups and downs of finding a durable intimate relationship are both a consolation, consolidation and very instructive for any man. Nevertheless, I wouldn't recommend this movie if one only prefers complicated love stories with cryptic psychological plots!
