Review brief: Romance (Trimark) Cast: Catherine Ducey, Rocco Siffredi, Sagamore Stevenin, Francois Berleand Romance is a 1999 film from France that is unusual in that, while it is not a porno film, it contains fairly explicit sex scenes. It also contains Rocco Siffredi, in his first mainstream appearance. My review of the DVD (rented from Netflix.com) is based on how well it works as an art film, given that it is written and directed by the noted French director Catherine Breillat, famous for her controversial films that explore various aspects of sexuality, usually from a womans point of view. I admit I was curious to see what happens when a female director in her mid 50s has the chance to showcase Mr. Siffredi and his talents, as captured by a cinematographer on real film, not video. First off, let me say that if you dont like foreign films, particularly French ones, you wont like this one.
