Catherine Breillat's adult drama Romance on DVD in November

24 September 2014

Controversial. Groundbreaking. Daring. Extraordinary. Explicit. Shocking. Romance, directed by Catherine Breillart, is all this and more. And now, after a long absence from the shelves, the film is finally returning to DVD, courtesy of Second Sight.

A teacher, Marie (Caroline Ducey) is happy living with her boyfriend, but their relationship lacks intimacy and, desperate for physical affection, she sets off to find it elsewhere, in a series of ever-more extreme encounters with strangers...

The film, originally released in 1999, drew as many shocked gasps from critics as it did plaudits when it first opened. It also troubled censors in the UK and around the world as it blurred the lines between art and pornography with its searingly honest depiction of a woman embarking on a series of increasingly explicit sexual encounters.

Described by Empire as a "daring study of sex and sensibility," Romance will be released on UK DVD on 10th November 2014 by Second Sight at the RRP of £15.99.
