Murphy is an American living in Paris who enters a highly sexually and emotionally charged relationship with the unstable Electra. Unaware of the effect it will have on their relationship, they invite their pretty neighbour into their bed.
Since the release of Love some have criticised Gaspar Noé as a practitioner of perversion, while others have praised him for reflecting intimacy honestly, neglecting the constraints of censorship and the taboo of unsimulated sex. In reality the use of unsimulated sex in film has been around since the era of silent film and while its use clearly hasn’t changed, its intent to emphasise different themes or simply shock audiences has.
Using an eclectic combination of sexual explicitness and drama to controversially captivate his audience, Gaspar Noé’s Love ultimately walks too close between the lines of pornography and art,
