Filmed in 2000 under the title "Dial 9 for Love" (later changed to "Men Are Dogs") with a planned 2001 release. The production company pulled out just after filming was completed, leading to the film being shelved as there was no money left to finish it. Several years later, director Kees Van Oostrum showed a rough cut to several hundred students at the filmmaking workshop he was teaching at Drexel University, and, buoyed by their positive reactions, decided to find a way to finish the film. Gary W. Wilkes stepped in as executive producer after Van Oostrum showed him the rough cut, and arranged for the necessary funding to shoot additional background scenes, create visual effects, record a score, finish editing and perform a digital intermediate. The film was finally completed in late 2012 and released in 2013 as "A Perfect Man". See more »
It is sad that today's audience always needs to see movies with people getting killed, some T&A, some drugs and bad guys/good guys stories, some mistreatment, rape, abuse, winning over prejudice or physical/ emotional weaknesses.
This movie just takes a slice of a couple's life and makes you wonder if it's the last piece or if they are going to make a new one together.
I really like this movie because it is real. More real than any reality show you might be watching. It's tender and tough, it's sad and hopeful. I like it because it's located in one of my most favorite places: Amsterdam, the picture is beautiful: the directing and filming are great and the acting is impeccable: (As another reviewer wrote) Liev Schreiber is very good, as well as Joelle Carter and Louise Fletcher but the outstanding performance of Jeanne Tripplehorn makes you wonder why we don't see her more often in major productions. Don't get me started with the dog.... How did they get him to play his part so well?
Give this movie a try for the simple reason that it is very well done and tasty. I am sure glad I got to see it.
