The Man Who Loved Women (1977) (French) - (Movies To See Before You Die - World Cinema/Drama)

11 Mar, 2009 | Movies To See Before You Die / World Cinema

This is one of the most unusual and innovative kind of films which take you deep into the psyche of a man and a woman. The film is about a middle aged man who is passionate about women and has had numerous relationships in his life which he keeps on changing as fast as a speeding train. The director makes you understand what the male hero feels whenever he sees a beautiful woman on the road and sometimes you feel that you may have felt the same in that situation.

Later, the hero decides to write about all his relationships in a book, which also gets appoved by a publisher. One of the best scene in the movies is when the women who is typing the manuscript of his book, refuses to type further as she cannot morally accept the content of his writings. But it’s all depicted in a very light comic manner, more like a research work on a particular character. Some viewers may consider it as a documentary on the study of a man’s feelings towards women.
But in any case the movie is enlightening enough as it explains the other side of the coin too. At times the director also moves on to the female side, revealing the thoughts moving in her mind in different situations. The very first scene itself shows that the movie has a novel approach towards its subject. The opening sequence is about a graveyard where a man is being buried and surprisingly there are all women and only women coming to attend his funeral. Truly entertaining and enlightening stuff from the director Francois Truffaut. But not a usual cup of tea for the mainstream cinema lovers. Highly Recommended for all studying film-making & cinema.
