My Sex Life... Or How I Got Into An Argument

1996 / 178min / DCP

DIRECTOR: ARNAUD DESPLECHIN

CAST: MATHIEU AMALRIC, EMMANUELLE DEVOS, JEANNE BALIBAR

Introduced by Mathieu Amalric

One of the key French films of the decade, My Sex Life... is a breezy epic of everyday life, starring live-wire Amalric as PhD student-in-crisis and overgrown adolescent Paul Dedalus, whose academic agonies are only exceeded by his difficulty breaking up with girlfriend Emmanuelle Devos amid many temptations, including Jeanne Balibar. Adroit and consistently ingenious, combining the spirit of Truffaut and a hip-hop backbeat, with a gift for the odd and unexpected exemplified in an exquisite gag involving a monkey, a radiator, and a door jamb.
