a kinky, dark cannibal comedy
31 August 2000 | by (Salisbury, MD, USA) – See all my reviews

In Aimez-vous les Femmes, writer Polanski has crafted a sexy/kinky dark cannibal comedy. It bogs down sometimes and threatens to become a police procedural, but the presense of the lovely Sophie Daumier more than makes up for the slow parts. The B&W cinematography is wonderful, retaining a noirish edge w/o detracting for the comedy and the kink
