Synopsis

Provocateur, philosopher and taboo-breaker, Jean Claude Brisseau (Secret Things, The Exterminating Angels) ends his trilogy with one woman's exploration of her deepest desires in A L'AVENTURE.

Desperate to leave her sexually unfulfilling relationship, Sandrine encounters a mysterious woman through Greg, a young psychologist. Fascinated by and attracted to Sophie, Sandrine leaves her life behind in order to accompany her muse on a journey that will allow her to explore her sexuality to the full.

With its rumination on the nature of existence, sexual abandon and more than a fair share of sly humour, A L'AVENTURE is Jean Claude Brisseau at his provocative, unflinching best.

Reviews

FILMSTAR MAGAZINE

"An intelligent, thoughtful script and outstanding performances make this a rare example of an erotic-themed that doesn't simply exist for reasons of titillation"

"This former school teacher's lectures on spiritualized sex and landscape... are a more moving and useful curriculum than anything to be got in most high schools"
