Total cliché
12 June 2019 | by DuniaHaniaSee all my reviews

Abnoxious and sexist. France has still a long way to go in terms of overcoming its inherent sexism. From the time to when the Revolutionary Government guillotined Olympe de Gouges, to their current incapability at saying 'people' or 'human' instead of man/'homme'. This movie is a cliché about how a "rational" intellectual man confronts nature/feelings and emotions through a romance with a less educated working-class girl (blue eye shadow, big ear rings, occasional glitter...). He has to take all steps forward to conquer her and she is the gate keeper of her morality until she gives in to sex and of course love. Their story is so cliché and yet the movie failed to make it believable... She is an object. Her beauty is discussed, admired. The movie obviously fails the Bechtel test. She tells him that jealousy is an indicator of love! Looking for the mythological man that was changed by love. Have you met this myhtological man? He's in the movies, over and over.
