Interesting film arises above common exploitation movie
Around the early nineties, I remembered they showed this French film several times on late night cable on Argentina, on a slate with some soft core flicks. While it has its share of steamy sex scenes, this movie is actually very interesting, disturbing, intelligent and aptly made. A young handsome man enters into an upper middle class family, and soon seduces and involves every member of the family into humiliating, degrading sex: father, sex starved mother, rebellious teenage daughter, even the maid. As it is revealed half way into the movie, he had reasons for doing this: his mother was the former maid of this family, and she died in a car accident because of the negligence of one of the family members (I don't recall the precise details). So some twenty years later, the little boy she left orphan, whose past is not known to the family, has become a stud out for revenge. Not for everyone, but surprisingly compelling and well made.
