This is one of the most unusual and innovative kind of films which take you into the human psyche of a man and women. The film is about a middle aged man who is passionate about women and has numerous relationships in his life which is as fast as the speeding train. The director makes you understand what the male hero feels whenever he sees a beautiful woman and sometimes you feel that you may have felt the same in that situation. And later the hero also decides to write about all his relationships in a book, which is also accepted by a publisher. One of the best scene is when the women who is typing the manuscript of the book, refuses to type further as she cannot morally accept the content of the book. But its all depicted in a very light manner and the movie is not narrated in a normal way. Some may consider it as a kind of documentary work on the study of a man’s feelings towards women. But in any case the movie is enlightening enough as it also explains the thoughts of women in some situations on the other side. The greatness and the strong impact of the movie can be judged with its opening scene only. The first scene is about a graveyard where a man is being buried and there are all women and only women coming to attend his funeral. Truly entertaining and enlightening stuff, but not for the mainstream cinema lovers. Highly Recommended for all students of cinema.
