duration: 98 minutes

Official Selection - Global Cinema

"This radical comedy, which focuses a magnifying lens on the very current topic of manipulation and male oppression in the field of sexuality and in the era of social networks, won't leave anyone feeling indifferent. Often funny, it's also an astute portrait of current French working-class youth" (Cineuropa) 

"The currency of modern French relationships still rises and falls on who holds the most power. But in 2018, the mathematical possibilities among two mutually adoring sisters and their respective boyfriends are steered in large part by that ubiquitous device, the smartphone. In fact, the phones are smarter than the guys in 'Sextape', a joyously irreverent and inventive romp jet-fuelled by dynamite performances co-written by the film's fearlessly self-affirming young actresses about the congenitally sexist males in their orbit."
