Trivia

Gaspar Noé first wanted to make Love (2015) before Irreversible (2002) and pitched the project to stars Monica Bellucci and Vincent Cassel as a project with unsimulated sex shown on camera. They actually agreed to star in the project and Noé set about writing the script. When they finally read the script, they felt uncomfortable sharing their sex life with the world and also specifically with a threesome with a transsexual. So the project was scrapped and Noé instead made Irreversible (2002) with which while it featured plentiful full frontal nudity from both stars, did not feature real sex on screen. Noé then revived the project many years later and made it in its present form. See more »

Goofs

Murphy uses a Loreo 3D camera to take pictures of Electra. At one point he turns the camera on end to shoot. This means the two resulting images will not align correctly to make a single stereoscopic picture. He also neglects to use the flash in the dimly lit room. See more »

Hottest sex scenes in a film I've seen
2 August 2015 | by (Gent, Belgium) – See all my reviews

Contains some of the hottest sex scenes ever filmed, thanks to the combination of plausible courtship scenes, character development, and graphic (at least partially non-simulated) sex. Many of the sex scenes are beautiful to the point you become aware of the cinematography, though I did not feel aware of the acting at any point.

A lot of the melodrama could have been edited out without impacting the plot whatsoever, not to mention some parts that are downright abusive to the viewer with blinding flashing lights, and, I suspect, some cheap abuse of 3D effects (I saw it in 2D), but then again this movie probably couldn't exist without giving the director a ton of editorial freedom.

IMHO this is a must-see if you care at all about eroticism in film.
