You’re married. You’re unhappy. Your husband, though handsome, does not satisfy you anymore. He doesn’t even try. What do you do? You discover what true romance can be—getting tied up by your boss.
Breillat’s quiet, beautifully told film about BDSM and love seduces the audience through the powerful performance of Caroline Ducey as Marie. This film is unapologetic. Both sides of sex are shown – the pleasuring and the frustrating. The beautiful and the ugly. The romantic and the violent. This is the true definition of a French arthouse film – unafraid, seductive, and innovative.
