Comment faire l'amour avec un nègre sans se fatiguer

Also known as: Comment faire l'amour avec un noir sans se fatiguer

French, dubbed in English (1989)

I didn't really want to write about this one. But in the interest of completeness, I will report that I saw this movie, and that Roy Dupuis did have a role in it.

"Comment faire" is about a young African man living in Montreal who spends a lot of his time seducing white women and then writing about his sexual adventures; in fact, the title of the movie is the title of the book he is writing.

But this movie is actually all about racism. The young man (whose name, interestingly enough, is Man) encounters racism everywhere he goes. They use the "n" word throughout the movie -- a lot. They were trying to shock the audience, and that's pretty much all there is. There is also a great deal of interracial sex, as you might expect considering the plot.

Roy Dupuis plays one of three racist drug dealers who targets Man. I found the character pretty distasteful, which was, of course, the point. He comes in early in the film and is in bits and pieces right up until near the end. Not only is his character revolting, it is also obvious that this was one instance in which Roy did not dub his own performance in English. It was jarring hearing someone else's voice coming out of his mouth.

I didn't absorb enough of the film to give it a coherent rating. But my impression was that it wasn't very good and didn't make its point with anything resembling clarity.

One star,

Billie Doux loves good television and spends way too much time writing about it.
