Sex Is Comedy is a 2002 French film written and directed by Catherine Breillat.


Sex Is Comedy revolves around a director (Anne Parillaud) and her troubles filming an intimate sex scene between two actors who cannot tolerate each other.

Despite its rather misleading title, the film is not at all humorous. Rather, it includes long meditations on the relationships between people involved in making a film.

Based on Breillat's experiences directing her 2001 film Fat Girl, the climax of the film features a recreation of a scene from that movie, shot from the point of view of the crew, with Roxane Mesquida essentially reprising her role from the first film.
