One of my favorite French filmmakers right now is Jean-Claude Brisseau. He is one of the ballsiest directors out there, making dramatic movies such as The Exterminating Angels and Secret Things. This is his newest film. It deals with a sexually frustrated young woman who goes out and has a couple of sexual adventures after meeting a psychoanalyst. And so she discovers the world of group sex and s&m, which don’t exactly fulfill her as much as she thought it would. Anyway I don’t want to give too much away, this is a damn good movie. Carole Brana, who stars as the lead, is obviously very beautiful, but I was surprised at how good she was, and vulnerable as well. The movie is slow and I could imagine a lot of people calling it pretentious, but I myself found it to be a very moving, interesting and original exploration on what could be considered “the myths” of female sexuality. High-brow porn or pretentious garbage? Watch it yourself and decide, and also watch the filmmaker’s other films!
