Product Description

In a social context deteriorated by a countrywide economic crisis, the life of several people will be turned upside down after they meet Cecile, a character who, in the footsteps of The Visitor in TEOREMA by Pier Paolo Pasolini, symbolizes desire. In confused times, it seems as though heightened feelings can lead man to express his urge to live by an unbridled sexual life and a passionate carnal love.

It would seem fair to expect that information to be disclosed beforehand.

Even though this is probable the complete version of the movie, I was left thinking there was something missing.

The only reason to buy a forein language movie available in the US is if it is an original uncut movie.

While I enjoyed the film overall the fact that this has been censored from original French version is extremely disappointing. I am assuming that Amazon did not do it, but do not know why French producers would do so. Be careful when buying that you get original French film "Q" when purchasing.

Waited several months for this film only to find out it was not the full version; i.e. it is censored from the original French version. VERY DISAPPOINTED! It would seem fair to expect that information to be disclosed beforehand.

I thought it was the original uncut version because it has more minutes than the other region 2 version called Q but it is not. I purchased the movie before there were reviews. Why have a french language movie available in the US in the french language if it is cut. The only reason to buy a forein language movie available in the US is if it is an original uncut movie. I am going to quit buying forein language movies unless they say original uncut version.

Although Desire (aka Q) is a good film regardless, anyone looking to buy this DVD expecting the same sexually explicit content as the French original needs to know before they order that this is a censored version of the film. Despite being marketed as "unrated" (and it probably is because, even censored, it's pretty explicit), once again North American audiences are being treated like children by the studios and are being forced to deal with a bowdlerized version of a film. None of this is Amazon's fault (they can't police everything they sell), but hopefully they'll adjust the listing accordingly. I also knocked off a star because no option is given to turn off the English subtitles (though at least the original French audio remains, with no English dub). (Note: possibly because I purchased this via Amazon Canada not Amazon US yet entered this review through Amazon US I have not been given an "Amazon verified purchase" option, but for the record this review is based upon an item I ordered via Amazon.)

After reading a few of the emerging comments from 'unhappy' customers who have recently purchased the (just released) 'North American' version of the film "Q" (aka "Desire") and found it to apparently be 'cut' of some of its' more graphic sex scenes - I can only offer my condolances and a hearty "WTF?!" I would note that the version of the film that I have reviewed is/was the "French' - Region 2 version of "Q" (also available on Amazon) BUT you need a region free DVD player to watch it. They are very easy to order on-line & a good one can be purchased for under $100.00... they open up a vast new world of DVD options! Such info aside - my review of the 'uncut' Euro-version follows:

Feel as one may about French films, it must be admitted that they bring something to the field of erotic cinema that is refreshingly 'real' , and the film 'Q' ('Desire') carries on this tradition. In an interview in the 'extras' section on the disk the director (Laurent Bouhnik ) states that he was attempting to present a more 'honest' and 'feminine' view of human sexual relationships. The mechanism that he uses to achieve this goal seems to centre on focusing on the female characters in the story as they relate to life circumstances and men. The plot revolves around a group of young 20 somethingish individuals, who appear to all be acquainted, living in a small sea-side town. Played out against the grim economic realities of present times we follow the action of the principal female character, Cecile, as she comes to grips with her father's recent death. Apparently a bit 'un-hinged' by her personal loss she appears to be casting about for some satisfaction/resolution through a series of sexual dalliances and relationships.

I should waited for some reviews before ordering this. I threw this into the garbage because everytime I saw the box cover in my collection it reminded me of wasted $$$.

not worth buying. another disappointing venture in North American censorship just to get a movie released. i wish America would grow up and accept films that depict real life and real sex. honestly i'm shocked the french sold out just to get their movie released but money rules. anyway, if you're looking for the uncut version, this is not it.
