Production[ edit ] One of the unusual elements in the filming of Sex was the use of three cameras. One camera was used to produce the negative from which prints were to be made for use in the United States, and a second was used to be used for foreign prints. The third camera was "placed at an angle different from either of the others" and "was used in the expectation that a unique angle might provide a more interesting view of the dramatic action". A Massachusetts newspaper gave the film the following review: Sex, the wonderplay of the season
Plot[ edit ] All About Anna tells the story of Anna Gry Bay , a single woman who seeks to maintain an active sex life while staying clear of emotional involvement, after having been jilted by the love of her life, Johan Mark Stevens.

When Johan shows up again after five years absence, she starts wondering how much longer she can maintain her emotional independence, and if that is what she wants. She has sex with him, loses his telephone number and cannot contact him. She ends her affair with Frank and when she is offered a job as costume designer in a French theatre, she decides to move to Paris. She leaves her flat to her flatmate Camilla Eileen Daly who asks her permission to rent out the now empty room to a friend of hers.
Horror[ edit ] In horror films , sex is often used to mark characters that are doomed to die. Characters that engage in sex acts are often the first to be claimed by the antagonist s , or will die shortly after their sex scene or sometimes in the middle of it. This convention of it being bad luck to have sex in a horror film is notably illustrated in the Friday the 13th film series, where supernatural villain Jason Voorhees takes a special dislike to teenagers and young adults having sex because, as a young boy, he drowned in a lake while the camp counselors who should have been supervising him were having sex.

He originally proposed the idea of a film about the word in jest, later realizing that the topic could fuel a documentary.
