Films with Adult Female / Young Male relationships

Manoj

I’m looking for movies which have elements of an adult female having or encountering a relationship with a adolescent or young adult male.

I’ve made a list of my current top 10 – http://mubi.com/lists/adult-female-male-child-relationship-films

Feel free to add suggestions that I can add to the list.

The Reader comes to mind.

How Stella Got Her Groove Back
Y Tu Mama Tambien
Heading South

I’d have to thumb through Ex-Iles: Essays on Caribbean Cinema again, but there are plenty of movies throughout the Caribbean, a lot in Jamaica, that are about sex tourism without all the romanticism that is apparently in Heading South.

I recommend Martin (1977) by George Romero, one of his best films but not very well known.

There are two film adaptations of Raymond Radiguet’s “The Devil and the Flesh”. One from the 40’s and one from the 70’s by Marco Bellochio.

Jacqueline Bissett, Sylvia Kristel and a few other actresses made some bad 80s sex comedies with that theme, but I can’t recall the titles.

BTW, I see you have Murmur of the Heart at #1. Someone said on IMDb a while ago that the scene where Laurent “does” his mother was taken from Proust’s Within a Budding Grove I’ll have to check that out someday. I especially liked the scene with the reading of Der Unhold by Laurent and his little friend.

Birth and The Reader are two of the most disturbing I can think of, and also two of the most underrated.
