A producer offers Charlotte the opportunity to direct an erotic movie. She diverts the project and directs instead a series of portraits of marginal women. Charlotte, who has a hard time finding herself, will take advantage of this investigating movie to try and better understand her relations with the men in her life.
This movie is almost unreleased and occupies a very special slot in Jean-François Davy’s body of work. It includes somes of the director’s favourite themes : problems in a couple, erotic relations or how to shoot sex scenes are indeed present in La Femme en Spirale. But Jean-François Davy himself says that this amazing movie is a cinematographical UFO. A curiosity to be discovered as soon as possible.”
Indeed, this is more a psychological drama, partly about porn, than a porn movie, although it includes a fair share of nudity and softcore sex, as the screenshots below demonstrate. And it’s fairly interesting, I must say, although the actors are mostly so-so. You’ll find a very complete (if rather excessively enthusiastic) review if it on the imdb page.
