Description: A chance meeting in the early spring morning bus in Paris all seals the fate of Oscar and Mimi. They are not interested in Love and romance – they wanted to explore their passion. And explore each other and too.
Review: Roman Polanski’s (Death and the Maiden) film “Bitter Moon” – not exactly a traditional erotic thriller. It’s an amazing soul and mind story of passion and obsession of two non-similar people – Oscar (Peter Coyote, who also played in Red Letters), and Mimi (Emmanuelle Seigner), accidentally met a bus in Paris a warm spring morning. Their love was not like an everyday, it is from the beginning was the passion burning soul and leaves a wound in the heart. This misalliance was doomed, but the two lovers are blinded by desire, but because everything that happened was a hundred times harder.
This masterpiece film explores the nature of human desire, showing the audience the danger fleeting passion. Passion, which led to a dead end both characters to self-destruction, humiliation and unbearable suffering.
In the film, a lot of frank erotic scenes that reveal the characters, from the psychological essence. Every sexual act pictures – a new touch to the understanding of the characters living desires, and nothing else. Love – it’s paradise, the sweetness of anticipation, but even sweetness can become bitter and burning your lips and flushed body. Oscar and Mimi realized it too late.
