fresh and funny, best of 20 at TIFF
27 September 2007 | by mamlukmanSee all my reviews

I also saw this at the Toronto Film Festival in Sept. 2007, with my wife. We saw 20 films there, and this was our favorite by far.

Yes, it has stereotypes--that's the point. But they hit home. As the director said in his comments, he originally read the novel in bed and kept laughing, but when his wife read it she said "I don't think that's funny." ha ha. The Marion character is great, and the male lead is just as good in his expressions as he reacts to her.

The plot is simple--a woman who lives in the same apt. building insinuates herself into the life of a happy bachelor by visiting just before his bedtime and talking his ear off. Familiar?? He succumbs to her charms as the easiest course of action, but every once in a while they hit a bump, and he realizes he might be making a mistake. The question is, will he find a backbone and lead his own life, or will he let himself be dominated by Marion? Could this be the story of every marriage??
