Here's one seedy XXX cinematic offering you'll want to explore. This unapologetically funny--and sometimes sweetly sad--French film, set entirely in a dark Parisian porn theater, explores the unusual love triangle between its female cashier, a handsome young projectionist and a lonely 50-year-old male customer. Against the backdrop of anonymous sexual encounters, these three tell their stories in bits and pieces, all the while attempting to maneuver themselves into each other's arms.
The cashier wants the 50 year-old; the 50 year-old wants the projectionist, and the projectionist seems ambivalent about what he wants. But this is no intellectual outing into gender theory. It's a humane story about regular people in an irregular environment, a clear-eyed, somewhat bitter, always entertaining visit to the dark side of town. Venture there--you'll like it.
