Breillat’s description of the film as a “psychological sitcom” is spot on, especially the way in which it depicts the Pignot family unit – an overworked father who barely has time for his kids, and a catatonic mother who spends more time smoking cigarettes than talking to her children. Their disregard is rather hilarious in its intensity, especially in the final car ride home, their tiny sedan pinned between hulking trucks, the gray industrial landscape invading their consciousness.

It’s a meticulous work of genre subversion. Her career-long fixation on themes like “desire, guilt, romance and anti-romance (which are the same thing)” impress the conviction of her ongoing affront against both the pestiferous clichés and contrived iconoclasm often present in representations of female sexuality under the male gaze.

The universe of Breillat is not one where sex is glorified, nor is female subjectivity. Her feminism resides on the ability of portraying woman at their most loving, vulnerable, cruel, detached, and thirsty. This is arguably something radically different than mainstream ideas about feminism in its provocative representations of desire, sexuality, and eroticism. It is a call to arms against the status quo; it is decidedly unapologetic, sometimes barbaric, often bittersweet, and always remarkable.
