Anatomy of Hell

Anatomie de l'enfer

Directed by Catherine Breillat
France, Portugal, 2004
Drama, Avant-Garde, LGBT+
  • French, German
  • English, German


With her characteristically unflinching gaze and courage, Catherine Breillat takes her exploration of sexuality, desire and the relationship between men and women to the limit. A pure, painterly, often surreal study in sex and the body.

Our take

Alert: Not for the faint-of-heart! Breillat approaches sex in ways no other (male) filmmaker has ever done. Her unwavering exploration of femininity peaks in this loose sequel to Romance where she fearlessly blurs the line between porn and art—and casting porn legend Siffredi is just the beginning.
