Storyline

People get into a strange state of mind after orgasm. They laugh at things which they would have killed for moments before and say things they normally wouldn't say. The nine characters in the film experience this many times due to the mathematics result of four men times five women. This then occurs exactly twenty times. A sequence of mini episodes arises which run into a single tale of love, conspiratorial relationships and sex. The entire plot revolves around the schemes of an ambitious manager's personal assistant Sabrina, who feels that the alarm is ringing on her biological clock. She therefore decides to marry her boss, Zikmund. This sets off an avalanche of events which gradually engulfs all the players in the story, starting with Zikmund's artless partner, Viola and the pleasure seeking, ageing hippy and photographer, Bakchus, through to Adam's soundman naive Jarousek and his wife, the barmaid Messalina, on to the confused virgin Kristina, the cynical medical student and ...

Czechs and Casual Sex.
12 July 2005 | by NateManDSee all my reviews

What more could you want from a movie? Juraj Jakubisko is one of my favorite Eastern European directors. His films have elements of realism, surrealism, magic realism and comedy. "Post Coitum" is very different from his other films, in the fact that it's a sex tragic-comedy. There are five women and four men, who are very unsatisfied with life. They have casual sex which causes them to be more unhappy. All of the characters literally hook up and switch partners unknowingly. There's an aged hippie photographer (Franco Nero), the sweet virgin, a prostitute, an egotistical record producer and his humble wife, a married couple, a rock star and other assortment of Felliniesque characters. I'm surprised at the low ratings the film has got. The story fascinated me with its nine characters linked through their sex lives. "Post Coitum" is like an erotic slapstick version of "Magnolia", as filmed by Fellini. Some critics have labeled it another useless soft-core porno. I disagree. We've all seen horrible late night skin flix on pay for cable. The actors look and sound artificial. With "Post Coitum" it's refreshing to see actors who look natural and normal. The film has characters that feel real, and consequences that happen because of their selfish actions. Not only that, but the film was very funny, and experimental. It was filmed in high definition, and used fun camera tricks that were similar to ones used in Jakubisko's earlier work. It even throws in a little CGI effects for laughs. "Post Coitum" is both sexy and silly, tragic and enlightening and one heck of a fun film. It's Oh Ohhhhhh Ohhhhhhhhhhhh ohh so entertaining.
