Director: Jean-Claude Brisseau
The latest provocation from France's notorious master of the erotic.
One of French cinema's most controversial modern filmmakers, Jean-Claude Brisseau (Secret Things, MIFF 03; The Exterminating Angels, MIFF 07), returns with the type of film he does best: one filled with explicit erotic voyeurism and sexual transcendence that borders on the mystical.
Inspired by a park-bench philosopher, Sandrine leaves her unfulfilling job and equally unfulfilling boyfriend to set out on an adventure that will lead her to an S&M dungeon run by a whip-wielding master and his submissive girlfriend.
Add encounters with a shrink whose hypnosis promises to bring about the most intense orgasm possible, and we have a worthy addition to Brisseau's recent works.
