Sexual Pleasure, Meaning of Life, and Einstein
10 August 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This film attempted to be more than a skin flick by blending some more serious, philosophical elements into basically a story of sexual pursuit. It was not a bad mix - until this 'levitation' scene which I think ruined everything. We all know levitation through mental power is physically impossible so I don't understand why director Brisseau chose to bring it in.

Sandrine, the protagonist in the film, was not happy with conventional sex with her boyfriend, and made an effort to seek pleasure in other ways. So over the course of the film you see beautiful women doing it, and what they did is pleasant to watch. An older man, an ex-physics professor, came into the story and he in some way played a fatherly role to Sandrine, educating her on other aspects of life including the universe and basic physics fundamentals such as the speeds of sound and light. What is good about the story is the interlacing of sex and physics appeared to work in some way too.

In a nutshell I think this film is worth viewing for some of the erotic scenes, and the dialogues between Sandrine and the older, wiser friend. It could have been a much better film if other fine tuning was done and the absurd scene omitted.
