Through the prism of this film, you can see how the attitude of the public toward erotic dramas has changed. Previously, they were made more complicated and deeper, but now the directors deliberately leave all the most secret on the surface.

1. "Kill Me Softly", 2002
The first English-language film by Chinese director Chen Kaige is a story about co-dependent love and Stockholm syndrome.

The girl is so blinded by the passion that she does not notice the main thing: her boyfriend is a maniac.
2. "Dreamers", 2003
Bernardo Bertolucci knows how to make sensual films. This tape is one of the most famous. The focus is on the love triangle between an American student and a French couple. The director wanted to show the mood of the youth after the sexual revolution as accurately as possible. Well, the debutante Eva Green after this role became a real star.
3. “Shame”, 2011
Drama Steve McQueen with Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan in the lead roles - the sensation of the "tenths". The protagonist named Brandon does not know how to emotionally attach himself to women, because he is addicted to adult films. In an attempt to get rid of her, he agrees to the most unpredictable experiments but does not fully understand that the problem lies elsewhere.
4. “Chloe”, 2009
Psychological drama by Atom Egoyan is a remake of the French film “Natalie”, filmed by Anne Fontaine in 2003.

7. "Fifty Shades of Grey", 2015
The film is scolded and criticized to the nines, but it is worth mentioning because it is a symbol of the era. The story of Mr. Gray and student Anastacia shows that erotic dramas have become simpler and banaler over time. Such are the demands of the public: more frankness, less sense.
8. “365 days”, 2020
A Sicilian mobster and an ordinary girl make a deal: you can't fall in love with each other in 365 days.

9. “Venus in furs”, 2013

10. “Love”, 2015
One of the most shameless and honest directors of our time is Gaspard Noe. His love is both drama and adult film rolled into one. In the center of the plot is a man rushing between two fires, who, by his own example, shows how destructive and at the same time saving the highest feeling can be.
