The Pornographer (French: Le Pornographe) is a 2001 French-Canadian drama film written and directed by Bertrand Bonello who co-wrote the music score with Laurie Markovitch. The film features explicit sexual scenes by pornographic actress Ovidie. It won the FIPRESCI Prize (International Critics Week) at the 2001 Cannes Film Festival and was nominated for the Stockholm Film Festival for Bronze Horse.
Jacques Laurent is a former porn producer once active in the sixties and seventies, but his creativity and libertarian sensibilities clash with Joseph, his co-producer, given the more systematized and formulaic attributes of labour within the genre of pornography in the early twenty first century. Meanwhile, his rebellious and estranged son, Louis, has plans of his own.
