Breillat's plot is a fictionalized re-creation of her own difficulties filming the crucial sex scene between a 15-year-old girl (Mesquida, reprising her role) and her older boyfriend (Colin) for her 2001 film "Fat Girl." Breillat's stand-in as director is the neurotic and demanding Jeanne (Parillaud), whose troubles include lousy weather, leads who can't stand each other, and a problematic prosthetic penis. Jeanne irritates her actors and crew (and they her) and only finds a sympathetic ally in her smitten assistant Leo (Wanninger). Actors are always quick to say that filming sex scenes is not erotic and here's the proof. French with subtitles.
