Movie Info

A lonely and dejected woman (Amira Casar) learns that only when all inhibitions are cast aside will she be able to truly understand the truth about how men see women in this erotically charged exploration of sexuality from controversial director Catherine Breillat. Teetering on the edge of overwhelming ennui, the woman pays a man (Rocco Siffredi) to join her for a daring, four-day exploration of sexuality in which both reject all convention and smash all boundaries while locked away from society in an isolated estate. Only when the man and woman confront the most unspeakable aspects of their sexuality will they have a pure understanding of how the sexes view one another.

    Awfully, sickening as it's shocking of two strangers explore the boundaries of sex and bad taste in this explicit and unseemly French import.

    Basically a bad porno, but then again, it's french.

    Any film which opens with an explicit homosexual blowjob is asking for controversy and thankfully that's something Breillat doesn't shy from. Perpetually at fear of disappearing up it's arse, this manages to be a highly provocative piece on the nature of sexuality and what impact the male perception of female genetalia has on that.
