The movie called EXHIBITION was the first hard-core pornographic film to be shown at the New York Film Festival, in 1975. It is a French movie directed by Jean-Francis Davy and has boring and unconvincing pretensions to sociological significance. Much of it emanates from an interview with Claudine Beccarie, the Linda Lovelace of French Cinema of the period. We hear her views on sexual liberation, her childhood fantasies, but not on politics. ("Too personal!") We see her friends in the porno business. Occasionally we watch her in action. Hard-core buffs will find the movie tedious. Documentary fans will find it spurious.
