Was expecting a more raunchy tale, has its moments but is dated and quite tame. This is not erotica really, more a slightly sexy telemovie. Good if youre bored and want something to watch but it wont turn into a hot night together or alone!

A beautiful French film doing what French films do best; being French. This is NOT porn. It's erotic but the 'old man's monologues about life, pleasure, God, purpose and even the 'laws of physics' connecting all of these is what makes this film! Beautiful women, thought provocation and well; Frenchness!

Despite what others have said, I think this is really just upmarket porn. True, the sex scenes don't dominate, but the reasons for getting to them are nearly as spurious as in lower rent movies. Being French, it does try hard to give the whole thing added depth but it's a pretty shallow attempt at it. There should definitely be a place for eroticism that is several notches above porn, but for me, this doesn't achieve it. Having said that, if you want some fairly full on sex scenes dressed up in what appears to be a more serious film trying to get out, then maybe this is for you.

It was fairly well produced. A little to contrite but well acted. Not sure the point of the story though. I cannot say we learn something here abut the characters or how we can relate to them. I understand there are dark sexual desires played out in ever increasing degrees, and there is a revelation of its power at the end, but it doesn't carry strongly enough within the story to get you to that point.
A fairy old style directing and production. You wont miss anything if you don't see this.

I really enjoyed the conceit of this film - get some beautiful people together, add an aging ex-physics teaching taxi driver, some fairly explicit sex and a dash of mysticism, and there you go. Sandrine, a young woman is bored with her routine life and husband and seeks freedom and adventure, which she finds with a young trainee psychiatrist and his group of libertine friends. They eventually seek out the ultimate ecstacy. Along the way she enjoys the musings of an older taxi driver and his explications of twentieth century physics. Actually very witty in parts and with an imaginative dialogue this is a film to get you going.

Stunning in every way, wonderful transfer clarity, exquisite leading actresses and honest to go touching and explosive spiritual esoteric mindblowing sensuality, what more could you want?..me, nothing!

In attempting to understand and overcome the hypocrisy of a strong-willed woman who has no shame in exploring her sensuality, with no intention of inflicting emotional pain, this film captures such a moment. The central character is doing just that (what the conventional mind would applaud in a man but will condemn in a woman). The film makes a contribution to that alternative perspective. The film can be visually stunning at times and with an intriguing additional dimension. It is well worth watching.

If you are looking for an erotic film look no further, it sizzles with sexiness. It has very strong lesbian sex scenes that will excite even the straightest of women

Very 'French' (metaphysical)... an intriguing movie that won't give answers. Nonetheless, the journey is worthwhile. It has its erotic moments, central to the plot, but they are not what sticks in the mind. Worth watching!
