I enjoyed this film. It was cathartic to see the tables turned on men for once because that’s the only way they’d know how we feel. But also, it just made it so much more clear how soul-crushing it is to live under patriarchy. Not because I don’t empathize with women but I think that we have grown a little used to seeing female suffering. So to have it enacted on males is very illuminating. I urge anyone interested to watch it and tell me your thoughts on it please.

I also enjoyed this film. I found the details on the camera shot choices really helped deliver the “alternative world”. In particular paying attention to this oppersite male gaze we see in cinema. Men were always sexualised in their shots, the camera either panning up their body, or the center focus on their legs, buttocks, chest.

This alternative world made we realise how sexualised we are in everything. I laughed a lot but strangely.. I really liked the matriarchal way. I don’t know whether this is a bad thing… perhaps it’s just everything I want (apart from the oppression of men of course). It makes me realise everything we are fighting for. I also love women in suits, I don’t know why, but they look so polished and tidy.

I loved this movie, however it’s left me confused and a little upset that we live in this society

whew the trailer already has me majorly depressed. When you see the demoralization tactics inflicted on women done to men it's so creepy in an uncanny valley sort of way. It sent chills down my spine. Because it really reveals them for what they are. Like seeing that man with the ridiculous fucking puffy eye patches under his eyes while watering his plants. That's when I started feeling depressed by this trailer. We live in that world, but it's not men, it's us, and it always will be. I can't foresee anything better. Actually I can only foresee things getting worse than they are now for women.

I feel the same way, it’s eerie. I think the perspective of a woman should be shown in a horror esque way.

My only complaint is that it was too short.. boo I wanted to see more of the matriarchy!

Yes, this should be a series!

This is probably the film that changed my life the most. I wish somebody would make it into a TV series, so they would have enough screen time to explore all the other aspects of patriarchy they didn't have time to touch on.

One of the things I liked the most is how quickly he adapts to the new reality. Shows how effectively social pressure molds our behaviour.

Everyone should watch this film.

That’s so true, immediately in he has a makeover and acts completely different. I found the scene in the plaza when they are both trying to kiss passionately, they are fighting for power. It looks really awkward when they both grab (like actually grab) each other’s hair and necks. He eventually gave in

I love this film and watch it numerous times! Not only is this social commentary simply illuminating, it manages to poke fun at all the absurdity of it all brought fresh lens. I am bummed about the ending though, or wish there was a part two. It feels as if he was too eager to go back and show her all of his patriarchal values, almost as if disregarding his character growth entirely.

This looks so familiar to me. I think my (late) husband put it on but I’m not remembering a lot about it.

The director of this film also had a short clip a few years before. That could be what you’re remembering
