Why watch this film?
The pun with 'Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown', by Pedro Almodóvar, is no coincidence. Just as the original brings a man directing a movie with a strong feminist vein, 'Hommes au bord de la crise de nerfs' is a criticism by director Audrey Dana ('If I Were a Man') of the most common male behaviors. The story is about seven men who apparently have nothing in common, except for being close to collapse. Together, they go on a four-day retreat, where they must restore their balance. But this is not just any retreat: there they must discover themselves, putting out their deepest feelings - all this exploring male stereotypes. To make both women and men laugh, while the latter will also have plenty to reflect on.
