Le Petite Death

cinema à la carte                                 

The Little Death
(Le petite mort)

" an edgy sex comedy and a warm-hearted depiction of the secret lives of five suburban couples living in Sydney."

This is my pick for the best  recent movie that nobody's heard of.  As most of you know, The Little Death" is a euphemism for the orgasm which is why some people (ahem) deigned to watch it.   A cheap little skin flick to skim through, perhaps.  But no. Rotten Tomatoes only gives it a 3, but no way.  Perhaps I was influenced by low expectations, but  the story ratchets up, brilliantly, until I am left blown away.  Maybe because I watched to the end.  I give it **** stars (but, secretly *****). I'm pretty sure  sophisticated C&S people will pretty much agree.

"Sophisticated C&S people"?

Are you sure you're not venturing into oxymoron territory there, Rodge?

Do you know why God invented the orgasm?
So people would know when to stop fucking.

Watched it, "because Rodg said so." Loved it, "because Rodg was right."
