This is a netflix movie I recently watched. I am actually unsure if it's still on netflix because I no longer have the service. I thought it was really funny. It's a french movie. It's feminist but it does center around a man. I would love to talk about it with anyone else who seen it.

I don't want to give too much away but the scene where he is at work and gets fired, is my favorite scene. If a women did what he did in that room I imagine it would go the exact same way.

Here is a summary: A shameless chauvinist gets a taste of his own medicine when he wakes up in a world dominated by women and locks horns with a powerful female author.

i love this film so much! Think I've watched 3 times already, i always get emotional at the end, can feel her anguish looking at the women's protest

How i wish we lived in a female dominated world, i wish i could get a just a taste of this world (i do in my dreams :/ )

btw my favourite scene, is when he starts to realize he's living in a world where he is considered less. He's drinking beer in a bar, and two men wearing hijab ask the bartender why she's not serving them, bc until this scene he was kind of enjoying the attention/harassment he was getting on the streets

I like the birthing scene. She just sighs that baby out. It seems like such a badass world to live in. I still feel sad for the men in the world because it reminds me of reality. :/

Really? not for one second i felt sad for them, i felt sad for us. Because that was still ficcional, and the "reality" in the film, is based on our reality. So i couldn't feel bad for them, bc they (men in the film) are us (women) and what we live is real. i don't know if i'm making any sense, but while watching it i couldn't think or feel bad about the men living it, i thought about us all the time, and when i saw the male privilege reflected on the actress, i would (again) be reminded of our reality.

i know, weird. 😆

but anyway, the main feeling during the movie is "i just want to live in this world" and the second feeling is at the end looking at the main actress seeing this different world where women's bodies are used, and her face looking at the outdoors, showcases idk just makes me anguished and i cry lol

I love this movie but I wouldn’t want to live in this world. I think/hope that if women were in charge it would be a very different world, not a straight swap.

But I think it’s clever that the film is a simple straight swap because it highlights so clearly how ridiculous the patriarchy is, and how unacceptable sexism is.

I liked the scene where he and his lover talk about why their sexes are on top in their worlds. In the woman's world it's because women are toughened by childbirth - they're clearly the stronger sex. In his, they starved the women to keep them weak. A very telling observation.
