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.

Brilliant and hilarious!
28 November 2018 | by aseelchehadeSee all my reviews

I've never written or rated a movie, but felt that the average rating on IMDb did the movie a great injustice that I had to write this.

It's a real shame that the majority of those who rated it poorly failed to see the point of the film. The film focuses on exaggerating every single character and detail, from the chauvnistic male lead, to the 180° world reversal. Though neither world is necessarily one that we currently live in, most men fail to see their own behaviour or sense of entitlement until it's exaggerated in the form of a film like this. Even then, so many men come in here, angrily ranting this is not their nature. If you're not, great, good for you. But the truth is, just like the issue of being born into a certain "superior" race, those living a privileged life fail to realize just how good they have it! The same holds true for gender privilege.

Damien is the epitome of chauvinistic men. I, as a woman who looks/dresses a certain type of way, deal with this on a daily basis. This movie is meant to give men a taste of their own medicine. The exaggerations, such as women dressing in suits/driving loud sports cars, are spot on. A lot of reviewers have rated the movie negatively because of this. They fail to see that these acts have been oversimplified, because how can we possibly begin to address things like job inequality, women in executive positions etc, when we still live in a world where men can catcall women on a daily basis, and we just "deal with it".

Whatever mindset you're coming from, give this movie a watch. It's very eye-opening, from both a male and female presepective (watched this with a male friend myself). It made me realize how I've adjusted my own way of life, in a sense, to deal with certain situations I come across on a daily basis!
