In a world where images of desire and seduction are associated only with 20- or 30-year-old bodies, seniors are branded as representations of our mortality, of our imminent demise. With that as the back story, it’s tough to conjure up strong impulses for life, desire, and sexuality. Le sexe et le troisième âge is a documentary that takes us into the heart and soul of a generation that grew up with church and guilt, but also with the Flower Power love philosophy. A generation we know little about in terms of intimacy talks freely about sexuality, seduction, and desire so that some of taboos are lifted. Without going into all the joys of sex, the documentary realistically highlights the fact that despite the passage of time, many seniors refuse to deny themselves their pleasure and have every intention of remaining sexually alive!
