    Not so ostentacious as people think

    Erotica. Simply think for a second and those in America will either get prematurely excited or deplore the subject altogether. This film was not the better of the lot and it came with all the worst cliches that those more familiar with the genre already know. She meets a handsome but self-destructive lover that mystifies her yet disgusts and that's her attraction to him. Wow! That's a lot of women out there.

    Good Beginning

    This movie is basically all about an american writer who is living in France during the depression and Nazi takeover of France. Elena is the main character. For money she starts to write erotica. In order to make it make sense the director plays out exactly what each story is about. Each one delves her deeper and deeper into her own sexuality and just how far she is willing to go. The first 10 minutes or so are probably the best parts of this movie. She meets up with another american writer, Lawrence, and sparks fly immediately. Things happen pretty fast for them because he is going back to america. Like I wrote above, the first 10-15 minutes are the best part. Oh and I suggest the NC-17 version since you get a full sense of what the movie really is about and not the sensored version.

    Doesn't stand up to repeat viewing

    After reading the reviews of this movie I was willing an eager. However, like all things to good to be true this articulated the cliche. Boring and not close to climatic or cinematic achievment. Good looking actors though.
