Going Further Until a Disgusting Absurd Ending
8 March 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Héléna Onelli (Annabelle Hettmann) is an intern of Medical Illustration in anatomical drawing in a hospital and obsessed by the human body and internal organs. She complains of pain on her back and is submitted to X-Rays by the radiologist and professor Benoît Govion (Thibault Vinçon) that does not find anything wrong with her. Their mutual interest in human anatomy leads them to a love affair based on sex. Héléna asks Benoît to go further in his exploration of her body and the lovers have no limits in their intercourse. Héléna continues to complain of pain on her back and Benoit examines her with the MRI machine and does not find anything wrong with Héléna. However, she wants him to explore her internally and Benoit breaks up with Héléna afraid of how far he could go in his curiosity and exploration.

"Le sentiment de la chair", a.k.a. "The Sentiment of the Flesh" is an erotic romance with a great chemistry between the gorgeous and hot Annabelle Hettmann, who is unknown in Brazil, and Thibault Vinçon. After a promising beginning, the author and director Roberto Garzelli is completely lost and does not know how to develop the story of obsession for anatomy of the two lovers. The disgusting conclusion spoils what could have been a reasonable romance. My question to the author is how insane would be a radiologist and professor to operate like a surgeon, without anesthetist or nurse, and bury his mouth in the flesh of the patient? My vote is one.
