SWEDEN, NETHERLANDS, FRANCE
The first film by Ninja Thyberg, a Swedish director whose short film, also entitled Pleasure, was presented at La Semaine de la Critique in 2013. Through the hard-hitting portrait of a young Swedish woman who sets out to become a porn star in the United States, it offers a female behind-the-scenes perspective on a macho world.
the Selection Committee
Ninja Thyberg's debut feature Pleasure is a journey into the American porn industry and follows 20-year-old Bella from Sweden, who arrives in Los Angeles with the dream of becoming the next big porn star. The film is raw but offers both a human and humorous portrayal of a male-dominated world seen from a female perspective.
