This 2002 provocation from director-writer Catherine Breillat is so perversely enjoyable it gives the lie to her image as a serious, politically incorrect purveyor of pornographic instincts. Here she parodies herself, casting Anne Parillaud (La Femme Nikita) as the demanding director of an erotic film who's after the money shot, encouraging her actors (Gregoire Colin of Beau Travail and Roxane Mesquida of Fat Girl) to do their simulated best—one bit involves Colin trying on fake erect penises for size. It's all layered with the kind of delectable philosophizing and psychologizing only the French can get away with, but as with most films about filmmaking, the wrap is what counts. In French with subtitles.
