Storyline

Story of two comfortable, affably married Parisian couples. When Rachel's jewelry business delivers to her web designer Vincent, their mutual attraction is readily apparent. It isn't long before Rachel invites Vincent and his wife Teri to dinner. Everything is very pleasant, relaxed and shabby-chic, very savoir-vivre. The instant physical chemistry between Teri and Rachel's husband, Franck is also obvious. After they've shared a few drops of wine and a large dose of metaphor, all revolving around a ping-pong table, Teri and Franck kiss. Everyone is mildly shocked, yet more intrigued and they handle it with a rather jejune sophistication. Soon they are regularly putting their sex lives on shuffle, passionately partner-swapping with an abandon that is both respectful and injurious to their ongoing marriages. At first they consensually agree to set no rules and enjoy themselves. As their feelings become more complicated they're forced to question modern relationships, responsibilities ...

Bittersweet Amorous Adventures
29 August 2011 | by georgioskarpouzasSee all my reviews

This is a good movie with a bold theme. The sexual entanglement of two married couples who practice swinging among themselves in a modern French middle-class setting, the initial euphoria succeeded by antagonism, irritation and the ending of this pact. Along with the bold erotic scenes, the parable of the "Prodigal Son" is narrated by a family patriarch during a meal, while there is a brief dialogue in English, in this French speaking movie. Actors and actresses support ably their roles, while the focus is more on the women than the men. In the end a memory remains more sweet than bitter for those involved. I dare say the same applies to viewers.
