AKA: Romance
Directed by: Catherine Breillat
Starring: Caroline Ducey (Woman), Sagamore Stévenin (Boyfriend), Rocco Siffredi (Paolo), François Berléand (Robert)

Plot – Spoilers:
A woman (apparently called Marie) resents the space her boyfriend forces between them. He isn’t keen on sex with her and might even be gay. She doesn’t suspect this though and withdraws further into self-loathing. Is she hyper-sexual or just sexually malnourished?

Director Catherine Breillat is the queen of intellectualizing sexuality. So don’t be too disappointed with yourself if you find yourself thinking, “Will this woman ever shut the fuck up” every time Marie engages in a sexual endeavour.

What begins as regular sex with a guy she picked up at a cafe, soon morphs into self-degradation as Marie tries her best to turn into an intellectualized cumdumpster. But instead, she ends up finding her zone.

Good film, and it makes me glad I’m not a French beta male.

WARNING: This review contains huge spoilers! I have intentionally spaced them out from the body of the review & placed them at the bottom in order to prevent said spoilers from jumping out of nowhere. *sigh* Well, I guess I can’t complain too much since I did go into this movie with both eyes wide open, knowing that it was gonna be possessed of a gynocentric perspective & strapped myself in for the full ride. But I was holding out some small modicum of hope that this wouldn’t be another piece of sappy, mellow dramatic, poorly reasoned, intellectually disingenuous, anti-male horseshit. But regrettably, today’s feminists deserve a big A+++ for rabid consistency! Never failing to disappoint. Poor little Marie takes an introspective journey into her own limited understanding of Hunan sexuality because of her lack of sexual fulfillment. Taking very little responsibility for her own actions, she stays with a tiny dick prude that has about as much interest in fucking her as a castrated Panda would, but she stays just the same (In all fairness, people do fall in love with the wrong people for the wrong reasons & the emotion of love & it’s accompanying loyalty are not like water from a faucet that can be turned on & off at will). Nevertheless she does stay with the idiot prude with the centimeter peter & fucks around on him (can’t fault her for that either!) But with every sexual encounter, the message that her sexual naïveté is made… Read more »

I like Catherine Breillat as a director on a par with the plague – on second thoughts, prefer the plague.
