About the Movie
Sex Is Comedy, the latest film from controversial, groundbreaking French director Catherine Breillat, takes us into the world of Jeanne (Anne Parillaud), a director struggling with a difficult sex scene between a young actor and actress who can't stand one another. Aided by her loyal assistant Leo (Ashley Wanninger), Jeanne is hell-bent on getting the scene right without compromise. Inspired by Breillat's own experience, Sex Is Comedy explores the mystery and humor of social manipulations, sex and power within the confines of a feature-film set. An indie film brought to you by IFC Films.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Rather than delve into the clinical details of sexual desire and behavior, Catherine Breillat's reflects on what it means for a filmmaker to conduct such an inquiry.
Fresh: Shows a beguiling aptitude for self-mockery in the pursuit of polemic.
Fresh: Breillat's first foray into comedy is playful, whip-smart and far breezier in both tone and look than the stylized gender polemics she's known for.
Rotten: Curious but small and lackluster film.
