I am Not an Easy Man (Je ne suis pas un homme facile)
Just in case you wanted your world turned upside down, we have the perfect suggestion for you. You may know Eleonore Pourriat as the shy and sickly mother from 2013's You'll be a Man. This year she stepped into the director's chair to create a surprisingly authentic and insightful piece about gender roles and identity in I am Not an Easy Man (Je ne suis pas un homme facile , 2018).
Ladies, this is for the times any woman has wished our male friends would walk a mile in our shoes.
One day, while walking down the street, ogling a couple of girls as he often does, Damien (Vincent Elbaz) hits his head on a lamp post so hard he knocks himself out. He wakes up in an alternate universe where the patriarchy is no more. Women call the shots, get the good jobs, and make the moves on men. Damien starts a new adventure, aghast.
The portrayal of the subtle differences in a woman's world and a man's world is eye opening and will having ladies everywhere nodding along in solidarity.
Elbaz's performance really nails how your every day cocky ladies' man might react in this extraordinary circumstance. He displays a complex and broad response to the relationship between the masculine and the feminine.
The beautiful Marie-Sophie Ferdane as Alexandra, Damien's love interest, perfectly embodies the female suave and successful heartbreaker that would gives 50 Shades of Grey's Mr. Grey a run for his money.
All in all, this is one thought provoking flick you'll want to experience for yourself, possibly right before heading out to the next women's march.
