He’s My Girl

De Caunes reprises his role as Jewish-French musician Simon Eskanazy in this follow-up to Zilbermann’s ‘Man is a Woman’. No longer troubled by his sexuality, Simon instead contends with a son he’s never met and a range of lovers, notably cross-dressing Naïm. Revisiting many familiar characters, including Simon’s demanding mother and New York-based ex-wife, ‘He’s My Girl’ stands up in itself as an engaging, light-footed emotional drama anchored in a solid, sympathetic turn from de Caunes.
