The Hairdresser's Husband, while finally moving, also plays like a film that dances in a trance about a half-formed idea with a preordained ending. Full Review

Product Description:

At an early age, Antoine's big dream was to be the husband of a hairdresser. As a sad-eyed, middle-aged man, he tells the story of his life and how he finds his fantasy, marries her, and then discovers that maybe it can't last forever.

Description by Ryko Distribution:

In this acclaimed masterpiece from Oscar® nominated writer/director Patrice Leconte (RIDICULE, THE PERFUME OF YVONNE), legendary French actor Jean Rochefort (MAN ON THE TRAIN) stars as an older man whose childhood sexual obsession with a local hairdresser leads him one day to the shop of beautiful young Mathilde (Anna Galiena from JAMON, JAMON). What follows is a romance of ultimate sensual devotion, where love will walk the line between physical pleasure and eternal desire. Anne-Marie Pisani (DELICATESSEN) co-stars in this uncommon erotic classic that DVD Savant hails as "one of the most remarkable and affecting love stories ever told!"

Plot Synopsis:

A young 12 year-old-boy, fascinated by his small-town hairdresser, becomes obsessed with her. He finds total sexual fulfillment only in a salon and vows to marry a hairdresser when he grows up.
