Storyline

Alexandra, 40, is a dominant seductress that nothing and no one seems to destabilize. His meeting with Damien, a forty-year-old big mouth, will upset his balance. Everything opposes and yet - By agreeing to lower the mask, these two will love each other against all odds. A fluoroscopy of the romantic relationship telling the story of a woman and a man, from their first meeting to their separation, in a world like ours, to this little thing close - that women and men are reversed there.

Surprisingly enjoyable
21 April 2018 | by sunalilewis-40597See all my reviews

I liked the premise but thought it was a bit obvious and didn't think it would be able to drag out to a full length movie. And I'm quite a feminist so I didn't think it would be particularly surprising seeing things reversed.

And yet I was. The attention to detail is good, so the things you never noticed and took for granted kind of make you do a double take. It's one thing to know the theory, another to actually see the different paradigm come to life. Thoroughly hilarious.

And a nice enough story, with good enough acting, to thoroughly sustain a full length movie that I did not want to stop watching.
