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.

Gender role reversal - thought-provoking, but flawed

Damien is a male chauvinist pig of the first order - boorish, inconsiderate, all the trimmings... So it's no great surprise that Alexandra, his author friend's PR assistant has no time for Damien at all. Then after a bang on the head, Damien finds himself in a world where everyone's roles are subtly changed and the women wear the trousers. In this world, Alexandra is the famous author and she picks out Damien whose weird views she thinks might make a useful subject for her next book.

At each turn, the film begs the question, if the tables were turned, would the people respond in this or that way? The gender roles they depict are sometimes a bit extreme and the focus on the one topic is at times a bit relentless, but it does make you think. The tone of the piece is light and though it might be meant as a comedy, it's not laugh-out-loud funny.

The film is dubbed into English (from the original Parisian setting) which is a pity, but it has been done quite well so you soon stop noticing. Vincent Elbaz and particularly Marie-Sophie Ferndale put in strong performances in the lead parts and carry the film despite its weaknesses.
