A group of bohemian intellectuals struggle to have an intelligent discussion of perhaps the world's most emotional subject in this comedy-drama from director Alan Rudolph. Edgar (Dermot Mulroney) is an artist living in Paris during the 1920s who believes that sex is a subject of vital importance, but almost no one discusses it with the gravity it deserves. With this in mind, Edgar gathers together a panel of fellow creative types at the home of a wealthy tycoon (Nick Nolte) and his oddly accented spouse (Tuesday Weld) for an evening in which they will discuss their erotic lives without self-serving wit or exaggeration. Joining Edgar for this experiment is an artist from Germany (Til Schweiger), an arrogant film director (Jeremy Davies), a self-obsessed painter (Alan Cumming) whose fey personality may cross the boundaries of Edgar's prohibition of homosexuality as a topic of conversation, and a student from England (Terrence Dashon Howard) who has attracted the eye of a lovely French girl (Julie Delpy) with whom Edgar has fallen in love. Certain that a number of profound thoughts will be shared with the group, Edgar hires a pair of stenographers to record the proceedings, but the presence of the two young and beautiful secretaries -- innocent Alice (Neve Campbell) and provocative Zoe (Robin Tunney) -- has an unexpectedly strong effect on the group. Investigating Sex had its U.S. premiere as the closing night attraction of the 2001 Seattle Film Festival.

not 'intimate' or about 'affairs', at least not in the modern use of the word. THERE IS NO EXPLICIT SEX IN THIS MOVIE. if you are looking for that, go elsewhere. this film is closer to a play, in that most of it revolves around a group sitting in a circle, talking about differences in the sexes and relationships. the important part of the film is in its dialogue and acting, instead of in action. set in the prohibition era, there is an air of properness to the women, which makes for their further discomfort in some of the conversations. this is definitely one of those films where nothing much happens...however, i was very interested in watching it because it was so well-written. the actors also put in strong performances as clueless pupils in the subject of sexuality.
