Fascinating, creepy story of sexual compulsion
23 March 2000 | by (Long Island City, NY) – See all my reviews

I saw this virtually unreleased film in the U.S. at a film festival and was both moved and compelled by this strange story of a woman's disintegration into madness and sex addiction. There's never been a character study like this. Apparently, the director and the actress wrote the film based on their own passed relationship and the painful honesty that it dramatizes makes it difficult to watch at times. Audiences often dismissed it as just another French sex film, but it examines the often deep recesses of the human personality with unflinching realism.
