My Man

A Feature film by Bertrand Blier

Produced by Les Films Alain Sarde

Release in France : 31/01/1996

    Synopsis

    In Lyons, where many are unemployed, Marie is a prostitute who loves her work: she's thoughtful and exuberant toward clients old and young, slim or flabby. One night, a homeless man sleeps in the foyer of her apartment house; she gives him a hot meal, then a place on the floor to sleep by her radiator, then she offers herself. She falls in love, giving him new life, clothes, a place to live. When he grouses that he must bar hop while she uses the flat for her work, she finds them a larger flat. He grows restless, seducing a manicurist and pressing her to prostitution. He's arrested for procuring, so Marie must decide what to do; he, too, must face the consequences of his choices.

    Subject

    "The voice is grave but juggles Blier's words better than any other. The eyes are dark but reveal the hidden areas of the human soul better than any others. Anouk Grinberg possesses a rare blend of sweetness and resolve, vivacity and melancholy. In "My Man", beautiful and deep as night, vital and light as air, she symbolizes all women. Especially women in love. Especially women capable of abandon, pleasure and passion. While Blier's film has both the gravity of a requiem and the fantasy of a popular song, she knows how to give the tune rare elegance and skilled charm and emotion."
    (Jean-Pierre Lavoignant - Studio Magazine)
