Storyline

Marc Deville is a successful writer of erotic literature and he is a porn addict. He functions very well in his daily business but as soon as it comes to close encounters with the other sex he is completely unable to deal with it. He is totally afraid of letting people into his life - nobody ever entered his apartment, nor can he remember what it actually feels like to touch another person. His sex-life only works for him if he puts a camera between him and the other person, satisfying himself by watching the image. Marc meets the charming nurse Justine during a reading in a bookstore. Justine is married to Eric, a successful theater director who loves her very much. But he can't adapt to Justine's sexual desires and out of that frustration he started to beat her up frequently. Justine has a death fetish - she likes to be strangled or choked during sex. In her garden she keeps rotting roadkill in a shed. They are kept in jars and terrariums and Justine watches them for hours. Death ... Written by GFQ

The others do it better
29 March 2020 | by Phil_ChesterSee all my reviews

In many ways, this feels like a version of '50 Shades of Grey' made for 12-year-olds, such is the level of sophistication presented here. We've seen this all before, but this is weaker than many other incarnations, as the characterisations are so poor. It's a beautiful looking film, but it's all a bit 'meh'. It's a harmless enough way to pass the time, but there are much better films you could be watching.
