Audience Reviews for The Hairdresser's Husband

  • Oct 14, 2009
    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.

    "Crossword puzzle's are like women. The more reluctant, the nicer it is when they give in. I know." A wonderful film. Funny, romantic and sad, a great film by Patrice Leconte. Great performances by Jean Rochefort and Anna Galiena.
