Editorial Reviews

A contemporary family's reluctance to talk about sex is thrown to the wind when the youngest son Romain is caught in a transgression at school. Now the whole family - parents, children, and grandfather - are confronted with the one subject they've refused to discuss for so many years. An intimate and poignant look at the discoveries revealed when taboos are crossed, SEXUAL CHRONICLES OF A FRENCH FAMILY is equal parts charming, moving, and revelatory.

Customer Reviews

And the sex scenes are just plain dull and boring.
Renfield
The original is sensitive, sometimes silly, sometimes hot indeed.
Duke
I checked Netflix and they show the same version of this DVD.

The movie is available online via other carriers and there the dreaded phallus is allowed into the light. The version available via Amazon has been censored, an odd thing to do to an erotic movie. The original is sensitive, sometimes silly, sometimes hot indeed. I hate being treated like a child by a major corporation, don't you?

I saw this movie in France. This version is heavily censored! I don't understand why this is the case. I thought that IFC has a policy of releasing or showing movies as they were intended. We certainly have problems in the US with nudity and sex in the movies. However, it is ok to have violence and other bloody stuff. As a recall, the sex in this movie was artistically done and important part of the story. I checked Netflix and they show the same version of this DVD. I can understand that because they have control of every they show. In this case, we are buying a DVD for our private collection. It should be the original version. We destroyed the DVD in frustration. The one-star is for the highly edited version of this DVD and not the movie itself. Stay away from it...

It was a waste of money to rent this from Amazon. They don't tell you ahead of time this is a highly edited version.

This movie has been edited, but, it isn't indicated in the title.. should be warned before watching. The one star is for the editing, not the film itself, which was quite good.

This is another great French film. To bad amazon doesn't tell you they cut 8 mins out of the movie. Really upset that they treat adults like children and decide what we should see. I would not buy this from Amazon if you want to see the full film. I will not be buying any more movies from Amazon.

saw part of this on sundance channel, wanted to see the whole thing. thanks amazon prime! the title says it all, it's all very natural with the way it handles the nudity and such. this is the cut version for our puritan eyes here in the american market, we're too prim and proper here in the states don't ya know?
anyway, i liked the narration by the youngest son. and how the mother is trying to not be like the older generation which never talked about sex in anyway and how everyone just kind of had to figure it out on their own. she sets about to change that, it's nice and well done.
this takes place over a years time, i liked that too. you open and close with the same scene a year apart, and you get to see the changes in everyone.

I clipped the following from another bloke's review.(I hope that's allowed) Since I couldn't say it any better myself I didn't try. He was right on.

This is a beautiful film that looks sex right in the face! The French are fortunate in that they missed the
Influence of Queen Victoria; they are not afraid of the human body and the fact that sex is the key to
a healthy life.
In this film we see three generations of one family- the joys and problems in each generation.
The film is explicit, but not pornograghic.
An American film maker could never have made this film.
