Movie Info

An obsessed anatomical illustrator and a handsome radiologist enter into a twisted affair in director Roberto Garzelli's shocking psychosexual film debut. Increasingly consumed by the imperfections in her own body as she studies medical illustration, Héléna (Annabelle Hettmann) voluntarily goes to a hospital to be x-rayed. There, she catches the eye of renowned radiologist Benoît (Thibault Vinçon), who finds her fascination with human anatomy a major turn-on. The more intense their affair grows, however, the more obvious it becomes that Héléna's preoccupation with the flesh is leading them both down a particularly troubling path.

Audience Reviews for The Sentiment of the Flesh

Not bad little psychological study with interesting characters and a mature handling of sometimes awkward subject matter. My biggest complaint was the end, which while I suppose was obvious, still felt forced and a bit out of place. The comparisons to Cronenberg are too easy and not necessarily accurate.
