Romy & Laure and the Mystery of the Enchanted Plug
This cine-tale about sex is falsely naive banter that shows everything, with the photographs of Romy Alizée. The lightness of tone serves as a decoy to better dynamite, jigsaw-style, the last clichés on female sexuality. The poster on the wall of a film by Catherine Breillat, A Real Young Girl, is a reference: Romy & Laure's "real" young girls have sex organs and do what they want with them.
