In her first feature-length documentary, journalist and host Karima Brikh meets up with Patricia Tulasne, Minou Petrowski, Maria Fernanda, Andreé, Trish, and Marie-Annick, all in intimate relationships with men much younger than themselves. She also shares the true confessions of the young men she meets who are attracted to older women.
The 30-year-old director wonders about the plight of aging women and their place in society. The sexual revolution brought about a whole generation who believed in women’s liberation and an end to long-held taboos. But in this era obsessed with youth and where sex is everywhere, the sexuality of mature women is still disturbing to many. Love affairs in middle age, seduction, sex, and aging, the Amour Cougar: au-delà du mythe documentary takes us into the real lives of these fulfilled and independent women in total control of their romantic liaisons and with a sexuality that disturbs us as much it fuels our fantasies.
