The Tao of Charlotte Rampling

Charlotte Rampling has certainly pushed the boundaries of traditional film roles with her choice of provocative characterizations in The Damned, The Night Porter, Swimming Pool and the incomprehensible Max, Mon Amour.

Billed as the "greatest ape romance since King Kong", our heroine becomes enamored with a chimp to the delight of her cuckold, diplomat husband. I recall seeing it years ago on a Betamax with a hipster buddy who claimed the director, Nagisa Oshima was the second coming of Jean Luc Godard.
I thought he was full of shit then and this clip reaffirms that belief.

Thanks to coisas do arco da velha for the link.
