'The Hairdresser's Husband'

September 15, 1996|Michael Wilmington

Patrice Leconte's 1990 comic romance of friseurs and frissons--which is about a man whose only ambition in life is to wed a beautiful hairdresser (Anna Galiena, pictured), and does--is shaped like a fairy tale: a perverse, cracked one. Although it starts on a roguish once-upon-a-time note, "The Hairdresser's Husband" is a movie about "perfect happiness," in which we find that bliss conceals a stinger (Bravo Monday at 8 p.m., Tuesday at 9:35 a.m.)
