The Hairdresser's Husband

Like Monsieur Hire, Patrice Leconte's subsequent feature (1990), written with Claude Klotz, is a claustrophobic, bittersweet tale of middle-aged sexual obsession filmed in 'Scope. But I enjoyed this film more, perhaps because the colors and moods tend to be brighter, with more of a sense of comedy. After 40 years of dreams about marrying a hairdresser, the hero (Jean Rochefort) finally meets the manager of a salon (Anna Galiena) who happens to be married to the owner. Peter Greenaway regular Michael Nyman composed the music; with Roland Bertin and Maurice Chevit. (Fine Arts)
