Fed up with her present lifestyle, and more particularly sexually dissatisfied with her fiance Fred, Sandrine decides to find a new way in life- intrigued by her friend Françoise, who tells her about her sexual experiments, and when she strikes up a conversation, in a park with stranger who discusses his philosophy of the emotional dead end that traps so many in this day and age. She leaves behind her job and an unfulfilling relationship with her fiance before encountering Greg, a psychiatrist who is an advocate of hypnotic therapy. She allows him to use his techniques to help her tap into the depth of her erotic desires, and when she meets Sophie, Greg's former lover who is willing to share tales of her own sexual explorations, she embarks on an odyssey to embrace the outer limits of her carnal imagination.Written by
L'homme sur le banc:
You know I just realized something really odd. Like you, I observe people and the world around me. All that exists. If I touch someone a woman, you for instance, she'll react. She may slap me. Or be glad about it. But in fact what are you if not a void? Did that shock you?
You didn't feel anything since I'm a void.

An erotic-philosophical film
"What is life, what is pleasure, what is love?" is asking the man on the bench (Etienne Chicot) towards the end of the film. Really, who can answer? And I would add myself: why people get married? Some only for two months, as another character in the film ? We have many scenes worthy of a porn film with explicit sex, very nice indeed. And we got on the other hand scenes of dialogue between the main character, Sandrine, and all the other characters, in which she tries to find answers to the toughest questions of the humanity. Well played, a little boring, but captivating. Carole Brana, Nadia Chibani and Lise Bellynck, like Three Graces, are very convincing in the roles of three women seeking at all costs the Absolute Ecstasy (through mega-orgasms).
