"Not for the faint of heart"
3 stars"

Romance is one of the most sexually explicit dramas ever made. The story is a disturbing paradox of a young couple struggling to well… get (it) on. It's a story which most likely leave one appreciating the sensibility of ones own relationships, while also leaving you scratching your head. This film was orginally banned in Australia and it's not hard to see why. This movie is not for the faint hearted, while the acting is excellent, the story is disturbing.


Although deeply in love with her boyfriend - and indeed sleeping in the same bed with him - a schoolteacher cannot handle the almost complete lack of intimacy he will allow. Increasingly frustrated, she gradually finds her sexual appetites leading her into ever more risky situations, including a developing one with the headmaster.

"...Original and emotionally powerful. ROMANCE is both fascinating and disturbing..."

"...Breillat brings fresh vision....An emotional authenticity we can't dismiss..."

"...Watching it is a memorable experience for several reasons. Not least of these is its blunt, hard-core frankness..."

"...[ROMANCE] breaks cinematic ground....Enthralling..."
