Emmanuelle Seigner and Peter Coyote get sexy in Polanski's Bitter Moon.
Sometimes it's impossible to separate an auteur's art from his scandalous life (Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate was murdered by the Manson family; in 1977 he had to flee the United States due to charges of rape of a minor that are still pending). In the case of Polanski, his salacious personal life heightens the dark sexiness pervading many of his moody movies. "Bitter Moon" stars Hugh Grant, Kristin Scott Thomas and Emmanuelle Seigner, Polanski's real-life wife, who is 33 years younger than her notorious husband. It tells the tale of a steamy affair of utter sexual obsession that turns into bitter hatred.
