Product Description

Off-beat French comedy. Marco (Marcello Mastroianni) is a Parisian driving-school instructor. When he starts to feel a little bit unwell, he makes an appointment with his doctor, and is shocked to be informed that he is four month's pregnant. When news of this leaks out, Marco is turned into a worldwide media celebrity.

By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER on 13 Mar. 2012
Format: DVD
A slightly pregnant man is a light souffle of a film, I think, full of innocent fun, brightly-coloured clothes, particularly favouring the orange shades, magnificent wallpaper - huge flowers against a deep chocolate background in the bedroom - and a very silly premise which is adroitly handled. The acting is also very charming, and it is delightful to see Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni together. Both are note-perfect, so that, although slight, the film has more presence than you might expect. Micheline Presle is also very camp as the doctor on whose 'diagnosis' of the problem the whole film hangs. Basically it is an enjoyable French comedy showing the domestic and working life of two 'unremarkable' people who make ordinariness seem very appealing. They are not married but have a young son, and it is delightful the way political subjects like gender politics, Women's Liberation, and freedoms and stereotypes in general are airily explored and subverted. Deneuve's character works in a hairdressing salon and the dialogues and clothing in these scenes are very camp, with Deneuve herself entering into the spirit of things with great energy that is also very subtly characterised. Of course in the end it is all a lot of puff without much substance but its charm is undeniable, and Mireille Mathieu sings two songs, one on stage, which add a certain frisson to the proceedings.

4.0 out of 5 stars Although it's a poor French comedy... 3 July 2005
By R. Warwick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I like it because it's so silly. I also waited for this DVD release for so many years because the theme song "L'evenement Le Plus Important Depuis Que L'homme A Marche Sur La Lune" by Mireille Mathieu is a great song, but it's never released on any of her CDs. I hope that the film and soundtrack will be remastered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful English Dubbed Version !!! 14 Oct. 2013
By rsccfl - Published on Amazon.com

This movie is awful to watch in English. The dubbed voice of Marcello Mastriani kinda sounds like 70's TV Detective Frank Cannon! Avoid boring yourself to death!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars A career low point for all parties concerned. 1 July 2005
By J. L. Diamond - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I saw this movie around 20 years ago and it was easily the worst movie Deneuve, Mastrionni, or Demy ever did. It's excruciating to watch.

This movie was not that funny. Mainly the did not show his belly as much as they should have. The movie is dry for modern times.
