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
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.
