08:58 pm: Lila Says
The packet blurb says this was controversial and it's non-rated and it's obvious why from the beginning (assuming the English subtitles were accurate for the French). The female protagonist doesn't talk about anything but sex.

This is one of those stories that has a bit of present time in the beginning, most of the story in the past, and then a bit in present time. In present time, the male protagonist is writing the story that was the real story in the past. Lila flirts with him and he's shy enough that it takes a while for any sexual activity to occur. However a rival group-leader also likes Lila and they hurt him and then gang-rape her and she goes to Poland. He turns in his story and follows.

Most of it is just her talking over and over about sex, which is kind of boring rather than controversial. The guy had one great sentence: "Shady Grove should be Satellite Grove because it's the only thing that grows here."

I would almost like to see that...

on DVD. I speak and comprehend French pretty well but I think it would get tedious after a bit.

Last time I heard 'hot, sexy French' it was the son of the owner of the company i worked for (French owner, son was a summer intern). He used the front desk phone while that person was at lunch and started a long, steamy-hot conversation with his girlfriend. After a few minutes of lewdness, I walked over to him, politely interrupted him and told him, in French, that I understood every word he said and it was inappropriate for an office phone call. He turned steamed-lobster red, politely ended the call with his girlfriend and never did it again.

The lead "girl' in the office (secretary of the main manager, a 50-something that still wore high heels, short skirts and a jiffy-pop hairdo which was a wig, every day) asked, "What did you say? I didn't know you knew French." I told her, and she agreed I did it politely enough. And the he likely wouldn't go to the manager to complain because I'd tell chapter and verse what the phone call was about.

Re: I would almost like to see that...

Well, I wouldn't consider it "hot" or "sexy." She just talks about sex, and part of making it hot and sexy is to present it that way. (There's no nudity of any kind, btw.)

Ah, good job with the boss's son! People shouldn't underestimate who speaks what.
