The Principles of Lust

OT: The Principles of Lust

Penny Woolcock // United Kingdom, 2002
Fiction Feature // FF2003



A party guest desirously licking a woman’s feet. – A naked man imprisoned in an aquarium struggling for air. – A bloody fistfight between two 11-year-olds, with their unscrupulous fathers taking bets on the winner. An uncompromising look at a group of degenerate mid-thirtyyear- olds by the young British director, Penny Woolcock, centred around lust and the waning of passion that sets in once relationships start to suffer from the pressures of everyday reality.
