Peindre ou faire l'amour

(France, 2005, 98 minutes)

A middle-aged bourgeois couple relocates to a rural cottage where, through their friendship with the local mayor and his wife, they find their senses, and their sensuality, reawakening. Good-looking but unsuccessful piece of updated hippie whimsy partially redeemed by its attention to Nature and by its irreproachable casting.
