Sophie Monks Kaufman 19 April Let the Sunshine In Parisian artist Isabelle, sensually embodied by Juliette Binochesuccumbs to a slew of interested men. Her life is all the richer for these flings. She may continue to yearn for love, but we, the audience, are privy to how naked experiences have made her soul shine. Denis has made a vocation out of evoking atmospheres loaded with unspeakable sexual urges. From the desire a white French woman feels for her black houseboy in Cameroon-set debut feature Chocolatto the soured homoerotic longing and glistening naked torsos in Beau Travail to the tryst between strangers caught in a Paris traffic jam in Vendredi soir to — most carnal of all — the cannibalistic lust of Trouble Every Day With the latter title, Denis is on to something.

Danger dogs a pursuit so profoundly physical and yet driven by something ineffable within. Here are 10 films, chosen from a much longer list, in which something is staked in the name of desire. What happens when a woman falls for a man whose desires are… unconventional? Decades before Christian Grey was even a twinkle in the eye of author E.

James, there was Stanislas Hessler, played with magnificent and melancholic authority by the Russian-descended actor Laurent Terzieff. This was the final film from the French master of suspense, Wages of Fear director Henri-Georges Clouzotand it blurs lines between sex and love, domination and submission, and Hungry erotic exploration desired and creation, leaning into psychedelic aesthetics.

Preconceptions about relationships are lost, narratively and visually, in a swirling vortex of Hungry erotic exploration desired charged darkness, until chains donned in the name of sexual curiosity link around the heart. The most romantic film about necrophilia you are ever likely to see! Kissed is most notable for its ethereal tone, which lends a surreal majesty to what is perhaps the most taboo expression of sexuality.

Framed in this light, the film would almost scan as set in a dreamworld, but for the protective secrecy Sandra gives herself. French provocateur Catherine Breillat has portrayed female sexuality in many movies. Romance is perhaps tame in comparison with Abuse of WeaknessFat Girl and even A Real Young Girlin which a busty and curious year-old experiments by putting all manner of farm materials up her vagina.

Still, Romance maintains an impressive focus on the intimate needs of Marie, who is in love with with her boyfriend, despite his disgust at what he perceives as her dirty side and his refusal to have sex with her.

Their domestic life is colour-coded. In their shared house almost everything is hued a wholesome and anonymous white. Her desire for romantic fulfilment is shown as the ultimate enslavement. This is not a reference to Hungry erotic exploration desired death. Claire has been having wordless sexual trysts every Wednesday with a man who is not Timothy Spalland therefore not her husband. These trysts are about to end. That is what Claire refers to as death. Her line of dialogue which sounds melodramatic but is delivered flatly serves to elevate scenes ly notable for their lowness.

Based on stories by Hanif KureishiIntimacy — more than it is a film about Claire — is a film about Jay Mark Rylance who left his own wife and kids in order to live in a deeply depressing London bachelor pad. Infamous for an unsimulated blow job, and ironic in title, Intimacy tackles the release offered by unattractive, unromantic sex, and how — for one woman — it means the difference between life and death. Margot, played by Michelle Williamsis a historical pamphlet writer in a comfortable domestic situation with chicken chef Seth Rogen until she stumbles upon a man who sees in her a ly untapped streak of sexual vitality.

Shot in Toronto at magic hour, the drama is saturated in warm colours, literally glowing with possibility. Williams, often a reserved performer, oozes physical yearning. Rather than having Margot make a swift decision, the meat of the film is giving over to agonising. Sometimes desire overpowers the frame, and adultery seems like the only natural choice.

For Alike Adepero Oduyedesire is bound up in identity and hers is unacceptable to her own mother Audrey Kim Wayans. Fear of being who she is and fear of not being who she is wrestle with each other as Alike moves from spending time out with gay friend Laura to lying low at home where her unhappy and religious mother will take any opportunity to release a diatribe. Audrey has her own frustrated desires and a scene in which she tries to cajole her cheating husband to come within touching distance reveals exactly where she suffers.

To this character, each blow and each encouragement is magnified. Judgement sets her back just as pleasure sets her free. Eliza Hittman achieved her first flush of widespread recognition for Beach Ratsin which a gay Brooklyn teen puts up Hungry erotic exploration desired macho front during the day, while secretly cruising for men at night. Shot in the dreamy images and hallucinogenic tone of a city heatwave, It Felt like Love follows year-old Lila who is desperate to emulate the sexual experiences of a worldly friend.

Lila sets her sights on older, sexier bad-boy Sammy hoping that he will take care of her virginity. She has no game and simply shows up to wherever he is, gazing with hopeful saucer eyes. Tiny for her age, she puts herself in increasingly vulnerable situations wanting only one thing. Rather than greenlight production on another script that shows a free-spirited older lady, Hollywood thought it better to stick with the tried-and-tested on this terrain. In its original Chilean form, Gloria celebrates a character who is not celebrated within the film world itself.

Former naval officer Rodolfo, her partner in an explicit sex scene, proves a let down. Korean-American auteur So Yong Kim specialises in cinema that is breezily delicate in rendering the surface ebb and flow of human relationships while totally brutal in exposing the underlying forces that wrench people asunder. Lovesongstarring Riley Keough and Jena Malone as old friends who slot right into each other, is full of tender silences, the sound of people engaged in the lowkey bliss of companionable activities together.

Both stars give career-best performances: Keough channels such introversion that it Hungry erotic exploration desired genuinely impossible for her to find the words to steer her life from orthodoxy towards what she actually wants. Malone has more firepower, and the capacity to act on desire, and this brings the women together, if only fleetingly.

Garance Marillier plays year-old Justine, a vegetarian as the film begins with her parents driving her to vet school. En route they stop at a service station for food. When a plate of potatoes is found to contain a rogue meatball, mother flips out.

As in Trouble Every Day, the appetite for flesh is a metaphor for sexual hunger. Williams does equally primal work on the forthcoming Jersey-set female character study Beast. The mood is a mix of delicious abandon and encroaching dread. Not everyone comes out alive. As genre gore takes over from sexual symbolism, Raw confronts the frustrating truth that you cannot have your mate and eat him.
