Synopsis

Adapted from Breillat’s novel “Pornocracy”, Anatomy of Hell follows a woman (Amira Casar) who meets a man (Rocco Siffredi) in a gay disco and hires him for four consecutive nights, asking him to “watch me where I am unwatchable.”

Our take

Alert: Not for the faint-of-heart! Breillat approaches sex in ways no (male) filmmaker has ever done. Her unwavering exploration of femininity peaks in this loose sequel to Romance. Here she fearlessly blurs the line between porn and art—and casting porn legend Siffredi is just the beginning.
