Sign in. Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbor into their bed....
French cinema, probably more than any other, is full of infamous erotic moments from the New Wave films of Godard in the 60s, right up to the present day works by the likes of Roman Polanski. From such a large pool to draw from, I have tried to select a list of what I feel to be the standout erotic or sex scenes from contemporary French films. I have also included movies made by directors inspired by a French style of filmmaking. This basically means we have a lot cigarettes smoked, teenager lovers running through the rainy streets of Paris and discussions of film history while playing lurid sex games. The most infamous moment occurs during such a game, when Eva Green forces Michael Pitt to masturbate to a vintage film postcard after he loses a round. Pretty shocking stuff.
North American sensibilities towards sex are often considered repressive—and even downright puritanical—as compared to those of Europe and South America. In the United States and Canada, this history of repression extends to the point where a frank and healthy discussion of consent and sexual exploration in our media is almost unheard of; after all, sex is not something to be spoken of in polite company. Thus, it becomes necessary to look beyond our borders to find art that will push our sensibilities into new places. Below is a list of films from all over the world that do not shy away from using sexuality and eroticism to examine or exploit our conceptions of the self.
