THE NEW GIRLFRIEND
Directed by François Ozon
With: Romain Duris, Anaïs Demoustier, Raphaël Personnaz
2014, France, 108 minutes, rated R
This serio-comic exploration of cross-dressing, gender fluidity and desire is by turns mischievous, sentimental and silly. Claires best friend Laura dies, leaving behind a baby and grieving husband, David. Soon after, Claire discovers Davids secret: that he cross-dresses in Lauras clothes, his way of keeping her alivethough he isnt gay. Claire is soon giving David grooming and fashion tips, their clandestine relationship unbeknownst to her husband. A delicious and frothy fantasia with a teasing erotic frisson.
This delectable entertainment is as surprising for its continually evolving (and involving) dynamics of desire as for its slow-building emotional power. Justin Chang, Variety
A delectable riff on transformation, desire and sexuality that blends the heightened reality of melodrama with mischievous humor and an understated strain of Hitchcockian suspense. . . . David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
