Day 333

movie: Sexual Chronicles of a French Family
starring: Mathias Melloul, Valerie Maes
genre: Drama,
year: 2012
format: online

plot: A boy is caught masturbating in class and it starts a domino effect with the way his family expresses their own sexuality

Okay, I had seen a few reviews on this, and they vary from one extreme to the other on how sexual this film is from people saying there really isn't much in there to see, to people saying it's straight up porn.

Well, they are both sort of right. 

The opening scene is a graphic sex scene of a girl masturbating on extreme close up and then it cuts to the one of the main character, only you don't see him doing it. Just the facial expressions. And the plot of the story sort of gets lost, which seems to be that sex is natural and healthy at any age.  And I say it gets lost because there are so many sex scenes, all of which are done with the female characters doing a bit more then faking it and all the male characters are out of frame.

I think the worst part of this is that it's sort of bland. The dialogue is weak, the plot thin and it can't make up it's mind if it wants to be a serious movie or a porn film

what do i think i learned from this film?
Nothing, I learned nothing
