  1. El Biffo's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    The process of filming an erotic scene. I'm so grateful that there are auteurs like Breillat who make films about love. Cinema would be impoverished if all it had were guys like Tarantino and Scorcese, who probably wouldn't know what to do with a script like this.

  2. BloodHound's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    I'm not feeling very eloquent right now, but I wanted to express my surprise enjoyment of this film despite it's odd micro-story. But it's much more than the sum of it's neurotic parts. It's an exhaustive but ultimately satisfying voyeuristic view into the world of performance art, human nature and relationships.

  3. Monsieur Simon Cinema's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Nice films about actor director relationships

  4. David R Williams's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    One of the truest films about filmmaking I have ever seen. The actor parading around with the fake penis is hilarious. The final scene is crushing.

  5. Loz Loory's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Parillaud is marvelous as she navigates the difficult task of being a female director. She's got to be the boss, but in such a way that her cast and crew don't feel threatened by her bossiness. A ridiculous situation, but that's how it goes under the patriarchy. Her manipulation of the "talent" over the course of the film to get them in the "right" frame of mind for the sex scene is scarily masterful. Great pacing.

  6. Khary Khalfani's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    This film gave me a new appreciation for the beauty of voices, conversation, eye contact, and sensuality. I felt mesmerized during the the conversations between the director and the actor. Their conversations were simple but deeply complex at the same time. I've realized that the French language has the ability to make even the simplest of words sound elegant, emotional, and sexy. I want to learn French!

  7. GianMarco Alegre's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    The way these actors acted like actors was reminiscent of bloopers from other films and shows. Seems to show a legitimate relationship between actors and the director, as well as the director and the crew.

  8. Ignatz's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Apparently, sex is actually a pretentious bore.

  9. Kenneth Gentry's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

  10. Danny's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

  11. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    More like 'Penis is Comedy'. Does that come in XXL? I thought the director's understanding of the psychology of actors was the best part, and the most insightful about people in general. Actors are like toddlers, attaching way too much importance to what they do.

  12. FISCHER's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Prenant comme référence scénaristique de départ, une séquence d'un film antérieur ("A ma sœur" tournée en 2000 avec la même actrice) Catherine Breillat nous livre une œuvre en partie démystificatrice sur les tournages, avec pour alter ego, l'évidente Anne Parillaud, d'une présence et d'une conviction indéniables... www.cinefiches.com

  13. AVA's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Schwach.Offenbar war Einfühlungsvermögen der Filmemacherin Mittelpunkt ,deren launenhafte Ausstrahlung machte dies jedoch zunichte.Alles wirkte sehr unterkühlt und humorlos.

  14. Michael Diers's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    Ein Film im Film, der auf mehreren Ebenen die Beziehungen von Mann zu Frau beleuchtet. Mitunter sehr aufschlussreiche Dialoge, ab und an aber mit zu vielen Längen.

  15. Frastro's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    So langweilig und dann doch so spannend...

  21. jjk's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    pointless and dull as fuck at times, gregoire colin is its only saving grace

  22. følende's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    although i did enjoy the day for night aesthetic and did respond to the ethical entanglements that accompany the filming of a sex scene, the film with the exception of the last scene, in my opinion fell flat.

  23. M****'s rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    All the things I wish I said on set.

  24. Robert Karol's rating of the film Sex Is Comedy

    I have a hard time figuring out if I like this so much because of my familiarity with FAT GIRL (the film is clearly about the making of that film) or on its own merits. However, a rather penetrating view into Breillat's own character, and at least one genuinely funny moment, when the male lead begs for a bigger prosthetic penis.
