Sex is Comedy

Cannes world premiere went on to over a dozen other festivals worldwide, SEX IS COMEDY provides a rare, eye-level look at what goes into shooting an intimate sex scene for a serious film by a world-class filmmaker (LA FEMME NIKITA star Anne Parillaud) when the actor and actress hate each other.

And YES, it was inspired by true-life events, namely the production of Breillat's previous film FAT GIRL.

"Breillat's first foray into comedy is playful, whip-smart and far breezier in both tone and look than the stylized gender polemics she's known for" - Chocano, LA Times

"insightful moments about the delicate relationships between a director and her cast, and about the mind games that go on both behind the camera and in front of it" - Sarris, NY Observer “It's refreshing to see this side of Breillat, a self-reflective artist whose evident anger over the sexual state of the world doesn't entirely subsume her, or her humanity” –Anderson, Newsday
