french chic

I've just finished viewing ten short X-plicit films produced by Sophie Bramly's SoFilles Productions. They are very French, classy, beautiful, and very exquisite. Victoria Abril, one of Pedro Almodovar's favored actresses, stars in one of them.

Six of the ten short films came out as a collection on DVD in 2008 (X femmes), the other four in 2009 (X femmes 2). You can purchase them here, either individually or as a collection. Sophie Bramly is the producer of these films: in 2007 she launched the erotic female friendly site SecondSexe.com, founding SoFilles Productions shortly after.

Most articles I've found online about Sophie Bramly and her SecondSexe and SoFilles Productions are in French. She and/or her site and/or her films are mentioned in this NYTimes article about sex in France; in this Guardian article about a recent "intellectual" porn film festival; and in this blog. In this interview made in conjunctions with the Circuito Off short film festival in Venice September 09, Bramly speaks about her background and current work.

The films are in French, but DVDs with English subtitles have been made and will apparently be released in Great Britain, among other. In any case, I think these films, subtitled or not, will speak to those who don't know French too, the language of sex is universal. Is it not?
