Sexual Chronicles of a French Family (2012)

Chroniques sexuelles d’une famille d’aujourd’hui (original title)

Three generations of a French family open up about their sexual experiences and desires after young Romain is caught masturbating in his biology class. As an 18-year-old virgin, Romain feels depressed and outcast. Following a humiliating transgression at school, his mother Claire decides that the whole family needs to be much more open about discussing sexuality. From here, directors Pascal Arnold and Jean-Marc Barr honestly depict the sex lives of three generations of family: Romain pursues an adventurous classmate, his brother and sister explore new loves as young adults, his widowed grandfather sees a prostitute regularly, and Claire and her husband try to break their humdrum routines. Sexual Chronicles Of A French Family is a revealing look at the hidden desires of ordinary people, and how the free expression of sexuality transforms each of their lives in numerous ways.
