Sunday, March 13 by Annette Smith

If you like your foreign language films saucy, check out these ten best French movies with hot scenes. Arranged alphabetically for your convenience, the list includes full-length feature films, soft core erotica, and shorts. All ten are focused on love, sex, and relationships in their many forms.

  1. “Ae Fond Kiss….” “Ae Fond Kiss…” is a 2004 French romantic drama with strong sexuality and language. Set in Scotland, this contemporary Romeo-and-Juliet story centers on the relationship between a young Pakistani man and a young Catholic woman. The film stars Atta Yaqub, Eva Birthistle, and Ahmad Riaz.
  2. “Belle de Jour.” “Belle de Jour” (daylight beauty) is a 1967 French-language film considered a “masterpiece of erotica.” Based on a Joseph Kessel novel, the story centers on a frigid French housewife who becomes a weekday prostitute. Catherine Deneuve, Jean Sorel, and Michel Piccoli star in this steamy movie. 
  3. “Bitter Moon.” “Bitter Moon” is a 1992 Roman Polanski masterpiece. This French movie, typical of Polanski films, exposes dark desires that are common among people–in this case, lust, obsession, and sexual perversion. The film stars Peter Coyote, Hugh Grant, Emmanuelle Seigner, and Kristin Scott Thomas.
  4. “Cote d'Azur.” “Cote d'Azur,” originally titled “Crustacés et coquillages,” is a 2005 French romantic comedy that tackles the topics of sexuality, infidelity, and relationships. A series of hilarious shower sequences more than hints at a teenager’s outlet for sexual urges. Gilbert Melki, Valeria Bruni Tedeschi, and Sabrina Seyvecou star in the film.
  5. “Fat Girl.” “Fat Girl,” originally titled “À ma soeur!”, is a provocative 2001 French movie featuring several sex scenes. The shocking drama centers on sibling rivalry, family relationships, and teenage sexuality. Anaïs Reboux, Roxane Mesquida, and Libero De Rienzo star in the film.
  6. “Fly Me The French Way.” “Fly Me The French Way,” originally titled “Tout le monde il en a deux,” is a softcore sexploitation film from France. The 1974 movie concerns a kidnapping by a sex-crazed cult and features lesbian sex scenes. The film stars Joëlle Coeur, Marie-France Morel, and Brigitte Borghese.
  7. “French Twist.” “French Twist,” originally titled “Gazon maudit,” is a 1995 French comedy with sizzle. After learning about her husband’s philandering, a French housewife invites an itinerant lesbian to move in with them. The results? A ménage à trois, with plenty of plot twists and turns along the way. Victoria Abril, Josiane Balasko, and Alain Chabat star in the film.
  8. “L'ennui.” “L'ennui” is a 1998 French romantic drama about a middle-aged man who develops a sexual rapport with a young woman. The sex scenes are sexual but not passionate, as the movie concerns obsession rather than love. The film stars Charles Berling, Sophie Guillemin, and Arielle Dombasle.
  9. “My Sex Life…Or How I Got Into An Argument.” “My Sex Life…Or How I Got Into An Argument,” also known as “Ma vie sexuelle,” is another French movie with hot scenes. The 1996 film tells of a man who continually takes wrong turns in his life and with his loves–his girlfriend and his many clandestine affairs. The film stars Mathieu Amalric, Emmanuelle Devos, and Emmanuel Salinger.
  10. “Serene Hunter.” “Serene Hunter” is one of seven gay short films in the 2008 video compilation, “S Is For Sexy.” This French-language installment features male nudity and gay sexual situations. Eric Debets, Jonathan Blanc, and Flannan Obé star in the film.
