Product Overview

Francois is a filmmaker who aims to study and document the sensuality of women. What he expected to be an objective exploration quickly becomes a difficult confrontation with emotion, temptation, jealousy, and lust. As his female subjects reveal intense emotional and sensual satisfaction, their effect on Francois and each other is immeasurable, and Francois' attempt to understand women threatens to unravel him. From the controversial director of Secret Things, comes The Exterminating Angels, a film that will shock you, provoke you, and turn you on.

Review In Jean-Claude Brisseau's 2002 film Secret Things, two women use their bodies and manipulative theatrics to get ahead at a sterile French bank, only to be flipped by a shark in a cornflake-crisp suit and a sharp tie. Ostensibly, Brisseau was being coy: Secret Things was an exercise in taboo that had the visage of breaking taboo...Now, he attempts again to find what he calls "a relation to reality" in The Exterminating Angels, a believe-it-or-not dramatization of what occurred during the casting sessions for Secret Things and the emotional backlash felt after...The level of the filmmaker's pomposity seemed a point of heavy arbitration at the screening I attended. Three seductive girls fall for an elderly director and sue him when he starts to back away from them? Hey, it's France. Self-aggrandizing aside, Angels has an imprudent fascination to its askew narrative and is, hands-down, the most blazingly erotic film to come along in some time. Whether or not Brisseau has successfully flipped his wig or not could be debated for months, but the extent of his success as a provocateur seems undeniable. The only question remaining: Can the modern man handle Brisseau's cup of tea? The answer: Dude! All-girl threesome!

Review Maestro of pulse-quickening simulated sex Jean-Claude Brisseau offers a frequently funny, authentically arousing and seemingly autobiographical tale in "Exterminating Angels," the story of a too-trusting French helmer who lands in hot water for taping auditions that call for a cold shower. Brisseau trains his deft camera on the crescendo of female sexual pleasure and how women can heighten the intensity of already blissful sensations via transgressive flourishes...While pic's not as exquisitely perverse as director's "Secret Things" (2002), the former school teacher turned iconoclastic filmmaker boldly soldiers on in his cinematic exploration of how women get what they want, in bed and out. As with "Secret Things," there is no question that the venture is both titillating and intellectually rigorous...Brisseau has taken pains to repeat that most of this script was written well before February 2003 when -- acting on charges of abuse brought by a few actresses who were NOT cast in "Secret Things" -- police knocked on his door. Helmer's brush with the law (he risked a stiff prison sentence but was more or less exonerated) adds a frisson although this shoot wrapped before last autumn's trial...Apart from beautifully lit naked flesh, entire pic looks very good indeed on a budget of roughly $600,000.
