Storyline

Family ties. Paul is an artist, his current project is to take photos of the faces of men during orgasm. He lives with Martial, his lover. His sister Camille, who's running the family business, takes Paul to the hospital to see their father, who is dying. Paul hasn't seen him in six years, and all his life has believed his father thinks he's ugly and perhaps not even his child. There's no deathbed reconciliation, but subsequent exchanges of Paul with Martial and with Camille bring opportunities for growth and change to this temperamental and self-pitying young man.

Excellent !
3 September 2003 | by (L A.) – See all my reviews

Another title from The Collected Shorts of Francois Ozon, La Petite Mort is a brilliantly realized little film, subtle and disturbing, with more nuance than most full-length movies. François Delaive is perfectly cast as Paul, the tormented photographer; his face is absolutely beautiful, a thrill to watch.
