Jacky in the Kingdom of Women

Jacky au royaume des filles

86 mins
7.8 / 10 (2974)


In the People’s Democratic Republic of Bubunne, the women are in power. They rule the country and maintain order while the men wear veils and do domestic tasks. Jacky, a young man, gets ready for the Grand Ball, at which the Generale’s daughter will choose a husband. He fervently hopes to be chosen.

MUBI's take

Taking the Cinderella story for a gender-bending spin, this sharp, high-concept satire boasts a fond eye for the absurd. A droll comedy of patriarchal inversion, Jacky in the Kingdom of Women deftly balances acute commentary on the perils of authoritarianism with a parade of Monty Python-esque gags.
