Not a bad comedy
23 April 2001 | by Sydney81See all my reviews

15 aout is about three men that are going to spend their holidays in La Baule, in French Brittany. When they arrive they, they discover that their wives have left them alone with their children in the summer house they had rented. This movie is about the problems one might encounter in a couple: of course, the three men are angry against their wives. But they also realize their own defaults : Raoul is always angry, and doesn't want any child. Vincent is a real child .Max is a mac, and is currently cheating on in wife. But they also realize that may have influenced their wives is highly feminist book dealing with the marriage. We can understand the women, whose husbands hadn't them happy. But they have listened to the book -and to its author- the same way they had listened to their husbands before. As a consequence, it isn't a way for them to get the moral strength they expected... Therefore, this particular type of feminism is negative, for men as for women.
