Metamorphoses

Writer-director Christoph Honore puts a contemporary spin on Ovid's epic poem and revels in the nakedness of his good-looking cast. The linking element between various myths and legends is schoolgirl Europa (Amira Akili), who willingly falls into the clutches of the hunky king of the gods, Jupiter (Sebastien Hirel), and enjoys carnal pleasure with her seducer. In turn, she encounters Bacchus (Damien Chapelle) and Orpheus (George Babluani), and learns about sexy skateboarder Narcissus (Arthur Jacquin), who is fixated on his own beauty, and doctor Tiresias (Rachid O), who shocks his partner Juno (Melodie Richard) by wanting to change gender so he can experience deeper sexual pleasure as a woman.
