Reviews

From filmmaker provocateur, Jean-Claude Brisseau (Noche Blanche, Choses Seccrètes) comes THE EXTERMINATING ANGELS, a startling journey into the erotic. Director François (Frédéric van den Driessche) is fascinated by the link between taboo and female pleasure. Intent on making a film about the subject, he auditions a series of actresses, who enact their deepest, forbidden desires. Watched over by two fallen angels, François immersion into the world of his actresses fantasies threatens to destroy him. Brisseau s sexually charged film, whose philosophical inquiry into pleasures of the flesh is often leavened by the director s sly humour, is a provocative and intense experience. Special Features: Interview with Jean-Claude

I thought this was a decent film and I understand where the director was getting at. It's not easy to talk about and can be read on different levels. It presents itself as a fairly straightforward, commercial film with all the necessary ingredients to summon a huge, mainly masculine, crowd. "The Exterminating Angels" tells the story of filmmaker François (Frédéric van den Driessche) who aims to make a film exploring female eroticism, during pre-production he put two women, Charlotte (Maroussia Dubreuil) and Julie (Lise Bellynck) to the test by filming them have sex, then a third joins, waitress Stéphanie (Marie Allan) in and they develop a close sexual bond. So much so that they begin to enjoy the thrill of having sex in front of François who they grow to covet. The relationship becomes dangerous when François discovers that temptation, jealousy and lust puts his film in jeopardy.

First of all, some may call me ignorant but I have no idea what the meaning of the angles are in this film? The symbolism slipped by me. They watch over the filmmaker and occasionally influence situations, other than that it's a mystery. Perhaps it's a statement about those that watch over us may also have the power to mess with us? Furthermore this film is an incredibly male-centred fantasy piece that pushes the envelope. It's a total "I wish" movie to see a bunch of ladies get it on? It seemed like Brisseau was playing out his fantasy by proxy through the character François or to a certain extent using the character as a means to justify what he asks women to do for his films. Some may call it sophisticated art while others porn but the bottom line is that the film does features some erotic scenes, many of which are border-line porn.

All I can really say is that it was an ok film that passed an evening on.
Not one to keep in your library and watch over and over again.
My copy is now at the charity shop.

Format: DVD
Exterminating Angels is Jean-Claude Brisseau's second film in the trilogy (Chose Secretes, A L'Aventure) exploring societal and sexual taboo's. Director Francois (Frederic van den Driessche) becomes obsessed by the mysteries surrounding women and sexual pleasure, who is watched over by two fallen angels. The film shows how sex often leads to emotional attachments and bonds, that can not be set aside by a film maker making a supposed academic film about sex (a theme that John Cameron Mitchell explores in 'Gifted and Challenged' a documentary about the making of Shortbus).

The sex scenes between the actresses are very explicit, but you can n't make a film about sex in this way without this kind of sexual content, but it's the manner that the film effects his relationship with his partner and starts to take over his whole life, becoming much like any other addiction, which fascinates. Like a lot of films men make about exploring sexual taboos, it can be read as a male fantasy, but like many films it takes a leap of imagination by the viewer.

The scenes with the Fallen Angels did not work for me; what did they mean? I'll let you watch it and decide. If your interesting in erotic films, then their are better films than Exterminating Angels, but if you're interested in a film exploring how obsession with sexual pleasure and breaking taboos can take over and destroy people's lives and can become an addiction, then Exterminating Angels is a good, intelligent film.

Love art films, love cinema, but this was neither. Just a poor excuse for as much soft core close to the edge scenes as possible with a very nasty ending which really sickened me. None of the characters are interesting. The girls are lovely, but then they always are in the fantasy world that this film is in. As to the point of it all, beats me totally.

A rather engaging movie depicting a filmmaker's efforts to record what he sees as vital questions about the human condition through the lesbian antics of a group of young women. It's very explicit (maybe too much so) but worth a watch. As with most French productions, the acting's excellent and photography of a high standard.

No problem with the supplier but this film can't even use art as an excuse for its content.
The "Avenging Angels" really don't play a part in the film.
There are lots of women playing with themselves and each other.
Not erotic, no plot and because of that the subtitles were a waste of time.

Sorry but in my opinion don't bother

I cannot for the life of me see how this film can have a 4 and a half star rating (as it has currently). It's poor, cheap, kitch, superficial and simply abysmal. And don't think I'm "outraged" by the content. Normally movies cannot be explicit and challenging enough for my tastes. No, this movie reminds me of a New Yorker cartoon some years ago: "Life is too short for soft porn." Stay away, be warned!
