Male Domination by Patric Jean

"I want spectators to argue when leaving the movie theater," Patric Jean said when shooting Male Domination. Is it possible, in the 21st century, that men demand a return to patriarchal ancestral values: women in the kitchen and men holding the reigns of power? Is it possible to imagine that young, educated women search for a "dominating companion?" What do we make of men who undergo a penis enlargement operation "as though buying a bigger car?" Although these trends may initially seem marginal, the film shows us that our attitudes rarely adhere to our views. The illusion of equality hides a plethora of daily injustices that we no longer wish to see, in which we all play a role. Through amusing, incredible, and sometimes dramatic sequences, the film forces us to take a position with regard to a domain where everyone thinks they possess the truth. Male Domination provocatively stirs up trouble through the feminism of a man who takes a hard look at himself.
