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 first movie
25 February 2004 | by jean-noSee all my reviews

The author wrote for TV before but it is her first long-feature movie. Well it has a lot of what first movies have : good ideas, not so well used.

Maybe the writer/director did not "live" enough to have an indeep feeling of those terrible matter, love and sex, male and female, human or puppet.

Some parts are realy funny, some others lacks of something.

Some situations can't work but no fictional gift is made to make us believe to them so... I'd say : watchable, could have been much better (or much worst too). I'd love to see a such subject writen by a 50 old woman for instance. The acting is not bad but the parts are not always well written.
