Explicit Scene in Abdellatif Kechiche’s Latest Film Leads to Outcry and Walk-Outs at Cannes



Abdellatif Kechiche is once again under the Cannes microscope for prolonged sexual content in his films. 
“Mektoub, My Love: Intermezzo” inspired largely negative responses from critics, journalists, and audience.
One scene in question involves a lengthy, consensual encounter in a bathroom between Ophélie and a man. 
The scene features what appears to be a 13-minute oral-sex scene
It lasts much longer than the most extensive sex scene in “Blue Is the Warmest Colour.”
Some viewers saying they walked out and one posting a photo of the theatre with plenty of empty seats. 
The leering nature of its camerawork is more pronounced than in “Blue Is the Warmest Colour.”
The male gaze was practically the only lens Kechiche used.
