LOOKING FOR TASTEFUL BUT EROTIC MOVIES THAT HAVE PLOTS

Postby mfp1069 » Mon Aug 05, 2002 3:26 pm

LOOKING FOR MOVIES THAT HAVE MEANING TO THEM BUT AT THE SAME TIME ARE EROTIC AND SEXUAL. I WATCHED A MOVIE ON SUNDANCE SATURDAY NIGHT CALLED HANDS TIED DOWN. WAS VERY EROTIC AND HAD A PLOT TO IT AS WELL. IF ANYONE HAS SUGGESTIONS ON WHERE TO FIND THESE TYPES OF MOVIES LET ME KNOW. I LIKE PRISON MOVIES AS WELL AS MOVIES ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS THAT INVOLVE MORE THAN TWO PEOPLE

Well, many fine films have erotic moments or undercurrents without being mainly sexual, but it's harder to think of great tasteful erotic films with plot. So here's a variety of suugestions;

The Mother and the Whore (threesome, and sex is a theme, but very talky, though); Goto Isle of Love (more quirky than erotic- Borowczyk's later films, eg Immoral Tales, are more openly sexual); In the Mood for Love (certainly tasteful, only subtly erotic); Claire's Knee, My Night with Maud, A Summer's Tale (these and some other Rohmer films are full of dialogue but have an underlying sexuality); One Deadly Summer (Isabelle Adjani is sexy in this, but it turns more serious than first impressions suggest); Belle Epoque (light-hearted agreeable Spanish film in which a young man staying with an ageing artist enjoys the hospitality of his 4 pretty daughters); In the Realm of the Senses (Oshima's controversial film- art or porn?); Les Valseuses, aka Going Places; has a threesome and is enjoyable though it's not specifically a sex film; Betty Blue has a famous opening scene; Tinto Brass directed many soft porn films with some pretensions to tastefulness;, Les Amants caused a stir back in 58; Conspirators of Pleasure (Svankmajer) is a bizarre mix of live action and stop-motion animation that hints at all sorts of "perversities".

I'm sorry, i don't think i've done very well- much of this is quite tame. No doubt there are many i've missed, which will occur to others, or to me after further thought. As i said, many of the scenes that come to mind as sexy are not in specifically erotic films.

I love The Last Tango in Paris and also Oshima's work! very very passionate and also "Tie Me Up Tie Me Down" where Victoria Abril spends most of the film tied up in a bed at the merci of Antonio Banderas, a stlker just released from a psiachiatric prison. Then "Y Tu Mama tambien" where Maribel Verdu teaches two teenagers the way to be in bed and "Sex And Lucia" Medem is just a perfect director with a very sensual Paz Vega.

Def "Last Tango in Paris". Watch it and then read Pauline Kael's review, to see what the fuss was about.

Gimferrer has come up with some good Spanish ones. Another is Lovers/Amantes, about a sexually frustrated young soldier with a virgin girlfriend, who gets lodgings at the home of a beautiful widow...

In Une Liaison Pornographique, Nathalie Baye and Sergi Lopez regularly meet for sex in a hotel room.

Romance (Catheine Breillat), and Intimacy (Chereau) have sex as their main subject.

Of Freaks and Men (Balabanov) is an unusual Russian film involving spanking photos and erotica in St Petersburg.

Henry and June- in English- is about the erotic diaries of Anais Nin in Paris, and was the first film in America to have a 17 certificate. It stars Uma Thurman and Maria de Medeiros (Bruce Willis' "pot belly" girlfriend in Pulp Fiction).
