Jacky in Women's Kingdom (French: Jacky au royaume des filles), also billed as Jacky in the Kingdom of Women, is a 2014 French comedy film directed by Riad Sattouf and starring Vincent Lacoste, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Didier Bourdon.

Synopsis

The film takes place in a fictional state of Bubun (or Bubunia), a matriarchal totalitarian country led by ruthless La générale (Generaless) (Anémone). In Bubun, roles of men and women are swapped, up to the point where male population is deprived of any civil rights, including work, education, military service, freedom of marriage etc. People worship The White Horses (making horses sacred animals) and the only source of nourishment is "paste" (tasteless viscous liquid delivered from waterpipe-like sinks). The country is isolated from the rest of the world, borders are guarded by armed squads, and public executions are in order (mostly involving men as condemned).
