No one cared thus far. Do you?

AKA: Anatomie de l’enfer
Directed by: Catherine Breillat
Starring: Amira Casar (Woman), Rocco Siffredi (Man)
Country: France
Language: French (English Subtitles)
Runtime: 01:13:32
Genres: Misc Paraphilias, Self-Harm, Gay, Violence Against-Animals

Plot – Spoilers:
A woman at a gay club intrigues one of the men there when he finds her attempting to slit her wrists in the toilet. She further piques his gay cock when she vacuously sermonizes about the doomed virtues of women, while blowing him.

The woman then offers to pay him to sit around at her place, watching her verbalize thoughts on feminine existentialism. He takes up the offer and is also glad to know she has some nice whisky to help him through it all.

At first, it seems like all she wants is to get laid, but an artsy, philosophical lay, wrapped in depth and meaning. Existential sex. But after a while, the woman tugs at certain sensitive areas of the guy’s masculinity and when she finally unleashes some of her menstrual power, he finds himself cracking.

Strictly for Catherine Breillat fans. Perhaps even for rough-sex king, Rocco’s fans. Or maybe for those who think men and women are fundamentally incompatible. Or maybe for anyone, actually.

Random:
If you’re disturbed by the underage moment, a prosthetic version is what it was.

Awesome film, simple yet powerful. That actress was so hot and gorgeous, I was jealous of that guy getting to do all those things with her. Cheers.

By the way, IMDB has this at 1hr 17 and 1hr 27 min. Is this version here censored?

I was hesitant going into this film because of the atrocious reviews, but was pleasantly surprised at how engaging and interesting it was. Many critics only seemed to draw attention to the period stuff and how disgusting that was, maybe it was only watchable for me since I’m female. Honestly some of these men need to grow up.

Would absolutely recommend. I’d also recommend Catherine Breillat’s other films, you can find a couple on here. I personally find her work fascinating, she’s one of the few directors willing to explore the (admittedly taboo) subject of female teenage sexuality (and female sexuality in general), a topic I can obviously relate to.

Some of the best and most intelligent of new French extremity.

I’m a girl and was absolutely disgusted by her drinking her own period blood that was fucking gross. This movie is nasty.

The F word. mainstream feminism…….feminism is mainstream by definition I guess. Not pretentious enough to be fun, not insightful enough to help. Glad I got to see it, 3rd grade philosophy.

Summary: Two unattractive people who have no reason to encounter each other exchange pseudointellectual viewpoints and proceed to have sex that neither of them would enjoy for the purpose of reinforcing the director’s aversion to sexual standards. “Vacuous” summarizes it nicely. I had to stop halfway because neither profundity nor carnal pleasure exists in this film.
