THE ME­CHAN­I­CAL BRIDE

NOW Magazine - Hot Docs - - Hot Docs Film Fest Guide -

(Al­li­son de Fren, USA). 76 min­utes. Subti­tled. Rat­ing: Trav­el­ling through his­tory and to Ja­pan and Ger­many, Al­li­son de Fren com­piles a vis­ually ar­rest­ing survey of the ev­er­grow­ing sex doll in­dus­try. You can buy a life-sized one – made to or­der – for up to $ 40,000. The new fron­tier is, of course, sex robots.

De Fren fails in her stated mis­sion to dis­cover why men so love their inan­i­mate sex part­ners. But she does make one thing very clear: men all over the world sure do crave them. Apr 29, 11: 30 pm, Bloor Hot Docs Cin­ema; Apr 30, 9 pm, Cum­ber­land 3; May 6, 9 pm, Bloor Hot Docs Cin­ema.
