"After Sex (Post Coitum)"
Directed by Brigitte Rouan
A serious portrait of
obsession with a comical edge, Post Coitum is a fine showcase for
the directing and acting talents of Brigitte Rouan. Rouan stars as a
married book editor in her forties who meets a client's much younger
roommate and almost immediately falls into an intense, sexual relationship
with him. When their affair ends, she has an emotional breakdown that
takes a toll on all aspects of her life. "...inventive, angry and
sardonically funny..." (Dave Kehr, New York Daily News).
French with English subtitles. 97 minutes.
