French sex farce in which adulterous husband Alain Chabat finds himself ousted when his wife Victoria Abril has an affair with butch lesbian Josiane Balasko. The result is a hilarious menage a trois, with the husband attempting to win back his wife's sexual favours after Balasko moves in.
The very French plot device of ménage-à-trois is given a thoroughly modern update here as beautiful repressed housewife Loli (Victoria Abril, she of several Pedro Almodóvar films) falls in love with a butch, cigar-chomping visitor named Marijo (director Josiane Balasko), much to the distress of Loli's macho, philandering husband (Alain Chabat). Hubby nonetheless comes to accept the situation (how very civilised), even if it means a certain amount of negotiating over his conjugal rights. Balasko keeps the farce bubbling under nicely until events erupt to a nice boil by the climax. --Leslie Felperin --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

On an evening out together, the husband, played by Alain Chabat, already annoyed at the lesbian¹s intrusion into his home with his wife¹s encouragement, is driven into a blind fury when he discovers, on bending down to retrieve a cigarette from under the table, the lesbian¹s hand half way up his wife¹s thigh, and then sees them dancing together very intimately. From this follow many scenes of shouting and screaming, jealousy and rage. You feel for the husband¹s usurpation and his humiliation at being rejected for a lesbian - though you rejoice at his come-uppance - and you feel for the wife who deserves the affection she has been so long denied, and you feel for the lesbian with a loving heart who wants only to make the wife happy - though others may condemn her for destroying a relatively happy marriage. .. But despite all the passion and jealousy, this is a light comedy and not a heavy drama, and you have the feeling all along that everything will work out well in the end....The moral of the story, ...is that the only things that matter are love, tenderness and affection and if we get those the source¹s sexual gender is immaterial; we are all bisexual.
This is a bright, witty and observant comedy, well-acted, particularly by Victoria Abril, and constantly entertaining.
