Interesting and quirky French comedy (now there's a few words you don't expect to hear in the same sentence as "French", along with "unpretentious" and "good movie"). Drifts towards the end, but generally worth watching.
A depressed man who finds happiness with a life-size silicone sex doll.. marvelous! Lingerie shopping, redecorating, cooking and photo shoots for the moulded beauty as well as explaining the joys of football. Charming little French film.
Simply beautiful. Monique is a sumptuous visual treat, with flashes of surrealism punctuating the already photographic cinematography. My main criticism is that this beauty was not fully embraced, too much being compromised in order to service the story. The silence of Dupontel is incredibly effective, leaving us only with images to interpret. This however is frequently interrupted again in service to plot. It is a shame the director didn't feel free to fully embrace this more aesthetic approach to film.
Falls flat a little towards the end, but such an interesting and unusual idea for a movie, couldn't help but like it. (Yes, I know "Lars and the real girl" has a similar theme, but this one was made first). Likeable cast and Monique herself is facinating!
