Laconte's lyrical film is a painful tale of erotic obsession, imbued with a typically French fateful sensibility, and splendidly acted by the entire cast.

Audience Reviews for The Hairdresser's Husband

I wanna see this again - I remember it being very good.

(Le Mari de la coiffeuse) Jean Rochefort was born to dance! I want to see him and Travolta work together.

Hmmm, I think I've noticed that some of the synopses on flixster don't really cover all the bases. Note to self: email Hannah about beefing up synopses.

Some incredibly thought provoking moments. So quietly French, and so boldly French at the same time. One moment you drink cologne, the next you speculate about arguments that could end marriages. Then you portray a borderline menage-a-trois hairwashing scene, and play it off against the vagaries of age and memory, and poetry about the exotic "other." Yup, it's absolument French, and I love it! C'est la vie en total, n'est pas?

That the Frenches were master in making melancholic movies was obviously shown in Le Mari de la Coiffeuse.It really pleased one mind with sadness after watching it. The plot was simple, a little boy was obsessed about a hairdresser as a child and then after almost 40 years he fulfilled his fantasy marrying a beautiful hairdresser in a barber shop. I was expecting more character development, but I thought watching it as fable it will turn okay.The two were in love with each other and their whole life was around the barber shop and their customers. Having some some bizarre humor, real life cases about everyday life and people's behavior,all this summed up to make this movie so enjoyable to watch.

I fell in love with the idea of female satisfaction and hedonism rather Galiena herself.Alluring and a little kid's dream is what's it all about,correct?Partially,the universal dream is what matters...where it needs just a small hairdressing space to be fulfilled.
