Sexual Chronicles Of A French Family review

Three generations of a French family open up about their sexual experiences and desires

Pascal Arnold and Jen-Marc Barr’s film opens with a teenage girl masturbating in close-up. But that is as raunchy as it gets.

18-year-old Romain (Mathias Melloul) is still a virgin, though his brother and sister are at it like petits lapins.

When he’s caught jerking off in biology class the resultant fuss leads to an outbreak of sexual frankness in his respectable family.

It’s all strangely tepid, though: the numerous sex scenes flatly un-erotic.

It doesn’t help that this is a censored version, lacking some 20 minutes.

You’ll have more fun staying at home.
