Storyline

Seven brief scenes, each with a couple, explore the surprises and the changes of heart that can occur during sexual encounters. Only one of the seven couples has been in bed together before; several are strangers or new acquaintances. A prostitute and her john, an older woman and a youth who follows her home, two women friends, a gay man with a straight man, a man with distinctive ideas about soap and water, a woman who wants the light left on, and a Spanish-speaking woman with a French-speaking man make for an array of possibilities and unanticipated consequences.

A great collection
15 January 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Scènes de lit, a collection of shorts, can be seen as part of X2000, which is itself a collection of shorts, including one called X2000.

Confusing enough?

If I've got it right, it goes as follows (with question marks in the years for ones that I think do not exist as separate IMDb titles)

X 2000: The Collected Shorts of François Ozon (2001?)

---- Action vérité (1994) (Truth or Dare)

---- Petite mort, La (1995)

---- Scènes de lit (1998) (Bedtime Stories)

---- ---- Trou noir, Le (1998?) (The Black Hole)

---- ---- Monsieur propre (1998?) (Mr. Clean)

---- ---- Madame (1998?)

---- ---- Tête Bêche (1998?) (Heads or Tails)

---- ---- Homme Idéal, L' (1998?) (The Ideal Man)

---- ---- Love in the Dark (1998?)

---- ---- Puceaux, Les (1998?) (The Virgins)

---- X2000 (1998)

I think Scènes de lit (i.e. this IMDb title I'm commenting on) is the best short in X 2000, taking the simple idea of a variety of couples in bed, each doing something different. I certainly never expected that first one (eek!). My favourite was Tête Bêche, just for the joy of it. These shorts may be almost too short on their own, but together they are a unique and interesting piece, even when included in a yet larger collection.
