Erste Bank MehrWERT-Filmnacht: LADIES MAN

One of the stranger chapters in Jerry Lewis’s continuing psychobiography, the most direct and intimidating confrontation between his perpetual preadolescent character and the wide world of sex. Jerry bungles into a plot line that might have been lifted from an ancient stag movie: he’s the handyman at a women’s boardinghouse. But Jerry resists the fleshy temptations of the opposite sex with all the blind determination of a six-year-old. An interesting, if not screamingly funny, film, enlivened by some of Lewis’s most audacious camera work and a spectacular three-story cutaway set that impressed Godard so much he borrowed it for TOUT VA BIEN. (Dave Kehr)
