Le Pornographe, de Bertrand Bonello, 2001

Le Pornographe by Bertrand Bonello and La Maman et la putain by Jean Eustache form a diptych on sexuality in its relationship with politics. In 1973, Eustache filmed his "happenings" in the context of his disillusionment with May 68. Thirty years later, LePornographe is haunted by the heritage of this period and its transmission. Jacques Laurent, a "porn" film director at the end of his career, looks back at the development of his profession, his subject and his codes. "Pornography as regards the scene of explicit sex – that is not what the film is about. But pornography as a trajectory – a trajectory towards the end of utopias: that is what it's about." Bertrand Bonello (24 Images, winter 2002).
