Like a Doll (Comme une Poupée) is a 2014 French short horror film directed by Joseph Catté.

“Toying with gender roles, madness and horror, Joseph Catté’s short film Comme une Poupée (Like a Doll) is a good example of how to make something impressive out of very little – in this case a single actress (Pauline Helly), a story by Roland Topor (author of The Tenant, another psychological gender swap study) and a lot of blood.

The result is an impressive, beautifully constructed and effective five minute short film that should have you wanting to see more from Catté.”
