Entertainment Reviews:

Sight and Sound - 03/01/2006
"Marcello Mastroianni is wonderfully quizzical....Demy's screenplay is as understated as Mastroianni's performance..."
New York Times - 02/07/2006
"Mastroianni's Marco Mazetti proves himself to be a pioneering metrosexual..."

Product Description:

A tongue-in-cheek comedy about a man who is understandably shocked to discover that he is "with child," A SLIGHTLY PREGNANT MAN is a masterpiece from director Jacques Demy. Mastroianni plays the pregnant Marco, an urban driving instructor, with Deneuve as Irene, his equally distressed hairdresser wife. As Marco's pregnancy becomes a worldwide phenomenon, and the film grows in its deadpan slapstick, Demy imparts some less than subtle social commentary and criticism into this ridiculous and fantastical tale.

Plot Synopsis:

In Jacques Demy's A SLIGHTLY PREGNANT MAN, Marcello Mastroianni and Catherine Deneuve play Marco and Irene, a modern urban couple: they both work, they're not married, and they have a child. After experiencing severe morning sickness, Marco makes the thoroughly modern discovery that he is pregnant. Doctors and experts convene to confirm this phenomena of paternal maternity, and Marco becomes a celebrity, modeling paternity clothes, making commercials and appearing on billboards. This hysterical and deadpan farce is one of Demy's most charming efforts. After accepting and eventually embracing their situation, Marco and Irene plan a sort of reverse shotgun wedding. The whole world is awash in male pregnancies and it seems that societal roles are set to swing, even threatening the possibility of a population explosion. Just as Marco and Irene are about to marry, they make the disillusioning discovery that Marco's pregnancy is false. As this absurdist modern morality tale closes, all that remains is Marco and Irene's love for each other and Demy's light and musical touch.
