"An Affair of Love" (2000)

An Affair of Love (2000) is the region 1 DVD release of Une liaison pornographique (1999), a tragic French love story. Tragic and French may be a redundancy here. We all know the Hollywood love story formula, Boy meets girl - boy loses girl - boy finds girl. The French managed to shorten the formula to boy meets girl - boy loses girl, quelle tragédie. In this film, a man and a woman are each being interviewed separately, but are shown in parallel in the film, about an affair they enjoyed together. The Gérard Depardieu role is played by Sergi López, a huge improvement in my opinion. The woman is played to perfection by Nathalie Baye, who won Best Actress at the Venice film festival for this role. The film was nominated for several other European awards.

Despite the somewhat whimsical introduction above, this is a very well-made film. It is never explained why the two characters are being interviewed, nor do we learn much about either of them. The film chooses to focus on the relationship they shared. She is between lovers, and places an ad in a fetish magazine, wanting to try something sexual she has always fanaticized about, and he answers. Two minutes after their first meeting, they are in the hotel room she pre-booked. After a successful first meeting, it becomes a regular weekly tryst, and they become closer to each other with each visit. They don't, however, exchange names, or any information about their lives.

Eventually, they try "normal sex," and the relationship becomes far more serious. What makes this film such a treat is the focus on the affair, the wonderful photography and art direction, and the incredible heat and honesty of the sex. We never learn what the fetish was, but it doesn't really matter to the story, and everything unnecessary was omitted. As a matter of fact, not telling us is exactly right -- it is enough to know that the fetish is very non-mainstream, and that they both enjoyed it a lot. Ebert awards 3 1/2 stars, as does Berardinelli. Apollo says 78, but Apollo readers give it an amazing 90. IMDB readers also elevate this film to near classic status with a 7.5/10. Like most sub-titled art house films, this one peeked at 19 screens in the US, and grossed $347,808. This is the most beautiful and intelligent film I have seen about love and sex in a very long time. Great date fare, despite the tragic ending, it is a good bet for the start of a romantic evening.

    Y'know, I saw Uco's Region 2 DVD captures of Body of Evidence (elsewhere on the page), and it reminded me of my Madonna theory.

    Here it is. You know that James Bond is a long continuing role that has been played by many different people. Well, I figure Madonna is the same thing for women. Here are the similarities:

    • James Bond sometimes played by an old person, then mysteriously replaced by a young attractive person. Same with Madonna.
    • James Bond's weight and facial fullness keeps changing. Same with Madonna.
    • James Bond is younger in 2000 than in 1980 or 1990. Same with Madonna.
    • The many people who have played James Bond don't look much alike. Same with Madonna.

    I looked at Last Call because it was a new release rated R. Waste of time for our purposes. Canadian straight-to-vid, zero budget, no nudity. (Wasn't a bad film, for what it was, but never got a distributor, not listed at IMDb. I could have told them they wouldn't get a distributor - would have been illegal since it's a Canadian film without Molly Parker)

    Speaking of Molly, I finally got to the DVD of that outstanding Kieslowski clone, The Five Senses, making in an all-Canadian day for me. I liked the movie even better the second time around.

    Molly Parker (1, 2)

    Mary-Louise Parker (1, 2)


    TomCat did "Progeny", featuring the Streep of Shit Movies, Jillian McWhirter. (I really like this girl, and I'd tell her so if only she'd lift that restraining order.)

    The Fourth Chapter of Volume C is updated.

    Hi all, kind of a mixed bag today. I sat down and picked through some raw caps I had lying around and siched some of them together. First of, I did Cheri Oteri's upskirt in the deleted scenes of Scary Movie, I didn't bother with any of the rest yet, some day soon I think I will put together the caps from all the girls in the film.

    Next I did Guinevere Turner and Julie Graham in Preaching to the Perverted. Gotta love Graham's haircut eh? I wasn't going to bother capping this movie, but I couldn't resist a bald fetish girl, and Turner is one of my favorite actresses (check her out in the lesbian film "Go Fish" to see what I mean, she's the non-butch lesbian "Max")

    Next off a hardcore cap. I know, she's not that good looking, and she has deformed breasts. But this is kind of a special interest peice, Kendra Jade is the porno girl who's step-mother video taped her having sex with Jerry Springer a couple years back. She actually made a couple movies with her step mom as well. She said she was just trying to expose Jerry, for what he was, but as you can see looking at her, she needed a "claim to fame" to get noticed.

    I had a loan of Nine Inch Nails video "Closure". It's a concert/Interview/uncensored video thing. There was nudity (both male and female) all over it, but I didn't bother with a lot of it, I just stuck with the naked bald girl in the "Closer" video.

    I also put together a couple of Rhona Mitra (1, 2) and Kim Dickens from Hollow Man, including one from the deleted scenes.

    It's been a while, so I thought I'd better send these along. They're none to magnificent, but I don't remember seeing too many others of this movie around. I hope the two actresses who aren't Audie England are correctly identified, but I can't be really sure.


  • Audie England (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

  • Anya Longwell

  • Elina Madison
  • Oz
    Aleksandra Vujcic
    (1, 2, 3)

    A warning to those of a sensitive disposition, Bryan Brown appears in these caps. Aleksandra is again in all her glory in an Australian movie Dear Claudia. She and Bryan, who plays a rural postman, are in a plane crash and are marooned on a tropical island. She has also nicked some gold bars and is wanted by the police. The movie is about how they get to know each other, literally and biblically.

    Senta Berger and Unknown actress
    (1, 2)

    From "Cross of Iron":
    This is an excellent war movie. It stars James Coburn and he commands a platoon of German soldiers on the Eastern front in WW2 during the retreat. I found the battle scenes very realistic and compelling. The only better war movie I can recall is the German movie Stalingrad.

    The nudity comes from two sources. Senta Berga (I'm not 100% sure it is her as she isn't named in the movie) is a German nurse who helps James 'recuperate' after he is wounded. The other nudity is by some unnamed Russian women soldiers who are captured by James' platoon.

    Kate Fischer
    (1, 2)

    This Australian actress is famous for flashing her breasts in Sirens and for dating one of Australia's richest men for a couple of years. With a few million dollar kiss off she has been bombing out in America as she has tried to make a name for herself. She has returned to Australia and these two 'pokie' scans are from a newspaper magazine - so the quality is not the best.

    Theresa Russell
    (1, 2)

    Theresa stars as a vice cop in Impulse. Unfortunately, the topless nudity is brief and dark. However, there are some other very sexy caps here.

    Isela Vega
    (1, 2)

    Isela is in the western movie The Deadly Trackers. In one of the scenes she gives us a bit of a flash as her nip unexpectedly pops out of her top. A good movie with an unexpected finish.

    Rhonnda Findelton

    Felicty Price

    Michela Noonan

    Sam Healy

    Helen Dallimore

    From "The Sugar Factory":
    This is another Australian movie that will only ever be seen in the art house movie theatres. It is about a woman Rhonnda Findelton who befriends a teenager boy. Felicty Price is his sister who is getting married. How her wedding dress gets stuck in her hair I have no idea. After the woman's daughter is killed, he goes off the deep end and winds up in a psychiatric hospital. Michela Noonan and Sam Healy are fellow inmates. Helen Dallimore plays a good-time girl he meets after his release.

    Wendy McDonald

    Continuing the Australian theme, Wendy is a topless barmaid in an outback pub. The caps, from The Craic, are not particularly clear but it was the size of the breasts that interested me - and they're real! The movie was very enjoyable, but only if you liked the Australian 'dry' understated sense of humour.

    Lucy Pearl Backup Singers From "The Tonight Show":
    Continuing the big jugs theme. Lucy Pearl appeared on The Tonight Show a week or so ago. Forget about the group, did you see one of the backing singers? She had her top unzipped just about to her waste and she had to keep tucking her boobs back into her top. Unfortunately, the caps do not do justice to the show. If only they had had a camera continually on her.
    and ...
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
    Madonna nude. I know, you're saying to yourselves, "Jr, what's the big deal? Every straight man over the age of 18 has seen Madonna nude...and many even claim to have had sex with her." Ok....while both of those points are true, this is still something a little special.

    These are DVD vidcaps by Uco from 1993's "Body of Evidence". "Body..." is not yet available yet on Region 1 DVD, so we in the Western half of the world haven't seen this quality before.

    Here's what Uco has for us...

  • Madonna's boobs...seen in every collage
  • Madonna masturbating...#2 and #3
  • Madonna full frontal nudity...#4


  • Jennifer Lopez
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)

    Artisane delivers another fantastic collection of J-Lo images. Jennifer looks great in this batch of scans from Rolling Stone. I kinda like the "J-Lo the Barbarian" look.

    Beate Jensen
    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)

    All kinds of nudity in these 'caps from 1987's "Der Kuß des Tigers", by Scanman. Topless, bare bum, and even frontal.

    Julie Warner
    (1, 2)

    Pappa did a great job 'capping Julie's famous topless scene from "Doc Hollywood".

    Wild On Some miscellaneous T and A from from the nudity friendly series on E!. Thanks to A5.

    Cecilia Kunz All new 'caps from German TV by Celeblover. Here is Cecilia nude in a love scene from "Jagd auf den Plastiktüten-Mörder".

    Laura Tonke More new 'caps by Celeblover. Here is Laura showing a bit of breast exposure in scenes from "Dich schickt der Himmel".

    Angelina Jolie Jolie and Elizabeth Mitchell in a love scene from "Gia". Scoop mentioned that he did not remember seeing these frames before. Great job by Watty.

    Nikki Cox Nikki sporting a bit o' cleavage on the cover of Gear. Honestly, even with Nikki, this is probably the most boring magazine cover I have ever seen. I thought the idea of a magazine cover was to entice people into buying it. You know, use bright colors, and tantalizing blurbs. Try to find a way to get the word "sex" on there somewhere. Basically make it look better than the 500 other magazines on the rack. What's next from the people at Gear, a magazine with a plain white cover and nothing else? Why worked for the Beatles.

    From the Mail Bag
    I don't know if this is of interest, but in the Kat Sassoon pics in the 2/03 edition, the leggy blond in the immediate background (giving us the quick frontal peek as she walks away), is none other than B-movie bim Melissa Moore. I'm guessing that this was made before she decided that cheesecake was a food group.

    Keep up the good work!
