On a campsite at the Belgian coast, the delegate of the Ministry of culture Jan Bucquoy must bring culture nearer to the working class. But the residents of this caravan park prefer to look at soccer, a boxing-match or a beauty-contest. They are not interested in an interview with the famous writer Pierre Mertens. As they are far from home they also want to have some sexual adventures or start a love-affair. The campsite is also the place where everybody wants to live in complete freedom and forget the obligations of everyday-life. Written by
Ten lifesize dolls of Lolo Ferrari were made in five different colors and were put at the entrances of theatres. Eight of the dolls were sold to friends and the two remaining are still in hands of the producer. They are in his living room because they caused too much trouble in the office. See more »
End credits are intercut with shots of one of the characters singing a song on a stage, then by the text "Les pauvres rêvent, les riches dorment. 1 septembre" (The poor dream, the rich sleep), and finally by a shot of Camping Cosmos deserted and covered in snow, with the words "Fin de la deuxième partie de la Vie Sexuelle des Belges." (The end of the second part of the Sexual Life of the Belgians.) See more »
This second part of "The Sexual Life of the Belgians" is more like a satire upon people on a holidays-campsite. British working-class on a camping ground would never react like the Belgians do in this movie. Lolo Ferrari as madame Vandeputte is very funny. The scene with the song-contest too. One wonders why people on their holidays behave so strange; because they are far away from their home, their friends and relatives? The sexual aberrations of the protagonists are a curiosity and do make us reflect on the Dutroux-case. But the film has a moral statement: sex without love has no value. The other Belgian items are well placed, such as there are: beer, French(=Belgian) frites and soccer. Indeed one is well aware of the universal message of the movie which is also a defense of the naturalness of youth in the person of the daughter of the organiser of cultural events (Jean-Henri Compère). Culture and pleasure can they go together when people only think about doing nothing during their vacations?
