Sex is Comedy

Directed by Catherine Breillat

Inspired by her on-set experiences as a female director, SEX IS COMEDY is, ironically, notorious novelist-filmmaker Breillat’s least graphic film, focusing on a different kind of sexual power struggle. Director Jeanne (Parillaud) has chosen her actors carefully, but as the shooting of the crucial sex scenes approaches, she finds that she is losing control, especially of her lead actor (Colin). How can she regain the balance of power?
