In his graphically erotic new film Q, controversial French filmmaker Laurent Bouhnik (24 Hours in the Life of a Woman) uses the current economic crisis as a trenchant social backdrop to the lives of a group of conflicted teenagers. When the enigmatic Cecile walks into their lives, their deepest-felt sexual urges are unleashed and their worlds changed forever. After the death of her father, 20 year old Cecile (Déborah Révy) looks for support from her friends but it s only through random sexual encounters that she finds solace. Alice (Hélène Zimmer), who lives under the thumb of her repressive parents, dreams of the perfect love story but her secret boyfriend Matt (Gowan Didi) can t commit to anything substantial. Given striking immediacy by the graphic depiction of real sex, it is these stories of love and desire that form the emotional and sensual epicentre of Q.

5.0 out of 5 stars A film of sighs! 26 Mar 2013
By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Well it could easily be zero and it depends upon the mood, but I enjoyed and thought the sex was "realistic" in being erotic, clumsy, ridden with sudden false starts, impotence and sexual thrills. It is not porn because it is not violent enough and lingers on the erotic rather than the brutal.

Filled with erotic meanderings from the perception derived from women the film attempts to enter their day dreams similar to what I am picking up from the shades of grey books. Whereas women's daydreams were seen as chaste pure and settling upon babies and farms, this sees women stretching their imaginations to portray secret desires. They are based upon lesbianism, frottaging, multiple piercings, flirting, going down on the spot, instantaneous couplings and numerous other themes from the imagination.

It is not a startling film where you go wow what was that, but in a way, despite it being done before, it is a subversive film, chiming in with a modern post sensibility where the men are generally bewildered by what they are supposed to do. Male identities are eroded through a loss of job and the women therefore take on a different guise as new freedoms and responsibilities are placed upon them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vive la difference 17 Mar 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Feel as one may about French films, it must be admitted that they bring something to the field of erotic cinema that is refreshingly 'real' , and the film 'Q' ('Desire') carries on this tradition. In an interview in the 'extras' section on the disk the director (Laurent Bouhnik ) states that he was attempting to present a more 'honest' and 'feminine' view of human sexual relationships. The mechanism that he uses to achieve this goal seems to centre on focusing on the female characters in the story as they relate to life circumstances and men. The plot revolves around a group of young 20 somethingish individuals, who appear to all be acquainted, living in a small sea-side town. Played out against the grim economic realities of present times we follow the action of the principal female character, Cecile, as she comes to grips with her father's recent death. Apparently a bit 'un-hinged' by her personal loss she appears to be casting about for some satisfaction/resolution through a series of sexual dalliances and relationships. She is having 'issues' with her 'steady' boyfriend so she 'teases' some other guys into having sex with her and also gets involved in some sapphic action with the sexually naive & frustrated Alice. To a lesser extent the plot also attempts to track the sexual flounderings of some of the secondary characters and it can get a little confusing, on first viewing, as to who is with who and why they're doing what they're doing.

Indeed, 'frustration' is a key concept in this flik as the director, again, makes his point that, in the real world, sexual relationships are not always 'smooth' and 'hot' as depicted in the porno cinema. This film IS quite explicit in showing intimate sexual situations and full female (& male) nudity abounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars I'm no french cinema expert, however... 2 Sep 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Watched this with my wife and we both enjoyed it. I read on here that one of the reviewers said there was no script, that the acting wasn't that great and it was all about the sex. I personally think that these comments are all pretty far from the truth. There is a very simple story, told very well. The film does have a strong explicit element and you have to admire both the casting, the direction and the acting in a film that does have such a strong provocative element for shooting in such a believable way. For the most part the shock factor is handled very well and I believe this film pulls it off. There's an element of humor in the drama that unfolds, that adds to an overall sense of mischief in the film, that spans right the way through to the direction to how the screenplay develops on screen. There are plenty of obvious things you can pick holes in. Like the fact the actors, especially the female roles, are all very attractive -but is this not true of a lot of mainstream Hollywood films?

In summary, this film is a bit of fun, watchable, well made, well acted and very rude. Not everything you watch has to be a life affirming moment.

Spike Lee made a mildly soft core movie, She's Gotta Have It, about a sexually promiscuous, young black American woman, with a voracious sexual appetite, and who couldn't pick between several boyfriends. Q is about a twenty something French girl, named Cecile, who's sexually promiscuous, and likes playing sex games with people.
It reminded me of She's Gotta Have It, but Q is definitely not a soft core adult film. It's not exactly hard core, but it's comfortably medium core, with just about everything you'd see in a hard core flick save for full on, penetrative sex and "money shots".
There are several no holds barred close ups of fellatio, cunnilingus and masturbation. Cecille cheats on her handsome boyfriend, a man who is into petty crime, and has no direction in life.
She seduces Matt, who's only too happy to succumb to her charms, because his own girlfriend, Alice, is a female who, purportedly, has very high moral standards, and is giving the poor chap blue balls (she won't go to bed with him, but is okay to give him a blowjob in his car, which is shot in explicit close up detail).
Cecile then seduces a frustrated married man on the Dover to Calais ferry crossing, and on a subsequent crossing, she bumps into Alice. Cecile turns on her charms, and soon afterwards she and Alice are involved in an intensely erotic lesbian coupling on the boat, arguably one of the best of its type ever filmed.
The film is undoubtedly beautifully shot, and extremely well acted, to such an extent that it's medium rather than soft core sex scenes, almost seem out of kilter with the rest of the movie. The film basically plays out like any other drama about a group of twenty somethings who are looking to sow a few wild oats.
