Film Details

UK Premiere

Official Selection Feature

Short Synopsis:

In the social context of a countrywide economic crisis, the lives of several people are turned upside down after meeting Cecile, a character who, in the footsteps of the Visitor in Teorema by Pasolini, symbolizes desire.


QIn a time when the country is struggling in economic crisis, when society is struggling against a plethora of problems and when capitalism and consumerism seem stronger than ever, several strangers will have their life turned upside down after they meet Cecile, a character who symbolises desire.
The casting call for Q read “we are looking for actors / actresses aged 20 to 40, professionals or amateurs, who are willing to shoot scenes with non-simulated sex acts.” Director Laurent Bouhnik says he wanted to make a film about the true power of love and how the sexual experience can be either so powerful or so hollow. In these broken times he sees us moving away from our natural origins, fetishizing and tabooing sex, whilst at the same time forcing it down people’s throats through advertising and the media. Q is Bouhnik’s attempt to tell a story about the purity of sex and the deep connection with another person that can only be found through it.
Sure to stir up some controversy, Q is an erotic tale centred on youth and freedom against the backdrop of the economic crisis.
