Film about female sex tourism is talk of the town at Cannes5/20/2012
A film about sex tourism is igniting a buzz at Cannes. With graphic sex scenes and unapologetic nudity, the movie follows a group of lascivious European travelers as they romp around Kenya in search of young prostitutes. However, these johns are a lesser known group: middle-aged women. Although the film, called "Paradise: Love," has no shortage of flesh, lead actress Margarethe Tiesel says it's more about female loneliness and what happens to women when they no longer look like magazine cover models. The flick is sure to earn Austrian director Ulrich Seidl as much criticism as praise, but, with a repertoire that includes on-screen oral sex scenes and women barking like dogs, we're pretty sure it's a sentiment he's used to as a filmmaker.
Does this film sound intriguing or appalling?
