Critic Reviews for Une liaison pornographique (An Affair of Love) (A Pornographic Affair)

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (8)

AN AFFAIR OF LOVE is that rare and much sought-after commodity, -- an adult love story presented with intelligence and craftsmanship.

Murphy's Movie Reviews

A refreshingly mature look at sexuality: these are people over 30 enjoying active sex lives and able to intelligently examine their actions and the consequences.

Audience Reviews for Une liaison pornographique (An Affair of Love) (A Pornographic Affair)

½

A cute, yes cute, 40ish French couple recount the stages of their pornographic affair to an interviewer. I say cute because most of the acting they both did was thoughtful, sincere reflection, and I thought they were cute doing it. BIG SPOILER: We are never told nor shown what kind of kinky sex constituted the affair even though it was referenced a number of times. Instead, the focus is on how they come to really like one another and then tragically decide to stop seeing one another. Even though I liked the characters I think the film was a cheap tease and tried to pull on the heartstrings too much. I don't know what the goal was for the film and the ride by itself wasn't good enough to compensate. It was neither erotic nor sexy, and for a 'talkie' film it had a little too much yardage between the goal posts.

fuck you

I liked the actors very much. Good acting, good enough film... I felt so...blue about the ending though :-(

Great style, acting, cinematography, and directing, but the story just doesn't quite tackle a big enough issue. This movie is about how even annonymous lovers will lie to each other about their feelings. Everything worked well i just needed a little more growth/conflict.
