Nettoyage a sec / Dry Cleaning (1997) DVD5
Sexual tension seeps from the sprockets of every frame of film in "Dry Cleaning," a French import about a 40-something husband and wife on the verge of mutual midlife crises who are seeking some way to revive and rivet their humdrum lives.
Their desires start out simply enough -- the wife (Miou-Miou) just wants to take a little vacation -- but with her workaholic husband pinching pennies, she starts locally by dragging him someplace exotic they would never otherwise go, a local cabaret featuring cross-dressing, lip-syncing strippers.
But more deeply buried urges find their simple visit to said cabaret leading to a bizarre live-in relationship with one of the ambiguously bisexual performers that upsets the balance of their marriage and begets melancholy, discontent, restrained jealousy, rage and eventually tragedy.
