Desire on DVD

Directed by Laurent Bouhnik


When the enigmatic 20-year-old Cecile walks into the lives of a group of conflicted teenagers, their deepest-felt sexual urges are unleashed and their worlds changed forever. After the death of her father, Cecile looks for support from her friends but it’s only through random sexual encounters that she finds solace. Desire is a probing look at the nature of sexual impulses and the unique intimacy that only sex can create between two people. Sure to cause controversy, Desire bares all with its cast of youthful newcomers delivering wryly observed dialogue behind an unbridled depiction of carnal passion. Directed by controversial French filmmaker Laurent Bouhnik, Desire is a subversive and explicit adventure that is impossible to forget.

Laurent Bouhnik began his career in the comic strip and illustration business. From 1988 to 1992, he carried out various technical image and editing jobs within the production company he established. In 1996 he directed Select Hotel where he shot a prostitute. Two years later he ventured into the prison world of Zonzon. Then he directed 1999 Madeleine, in which a person is looking for a soul mate. Afterwards, he made 24 Hours in the Life of a Woman, inspired by a novel by Stefan Zweig.

'Desire' available on DVD in the US June 5, 2012.
