Here is an example of when real life flows into art. The French film Charlotte For Ever was written and directed by Serge Gainsbourg (French composer, writer, actor…) who also stars in the film playing the father of his real life daughter Charlotte Gainsbourg. You may recognize her from another incest film The Cement Garden. In Charlotte For Ever things get very weird. Really weird, even for the eighties..
Surprisingly, this wasn’t the first thing Serge and his daughter collaborated on. They did a song and video together calledLemon Incest in 1984, when Charlotte was just thirteen. This song appeared on Charlotte’s debut album titled Charlotte for Everreleased in 1986. All songs except #8 (music by Soviet composer Matvei Blanter) were written by her father Serge Gainsbourg. In parts of the world, the album was released under the controversial title Lemon Incest. Mercury Records re-released the album in France in 2007 under the Lemon Incest title. View the track listings here and purchase the song and/or album from iTunes. If that’s not enough check out the video that takes place on a bed.

Dan: A pimp?
Miriam: A Daddy.
If you haven’t checked out the amazing show THE FALL from Ireland and on The BBC, please do so. It is a dark, psychological drama thriller that is so well done. It examines the lives of two hunters. One is a serial killer who stalks his victims in and around Belfast and the other is a talented female Detective Superintendent from the MET who is brought in to catch him. I don’t want to give too much away, but the main character of Paul has some mommy issues. Jamie Dornan (who plays Paul) will be playing Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey, and that character has some serious mommy issues too.
The latest episode (S02E04) had a scene where Paul’s daughter asks why she can’t marry her father – see my gifs here. That made me love this show even more. I thought I was the only twisted one to think something like this. Paul and his daughter are very close, she is the only one I think he truly loves. Not only that, but another spoiler scene hints at her following in her father’s footsteps, which I thought might end up happening.
What do you think of the show?
In one of the best scenes from “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” the over protective father Cade (Mark Wahlberg) thinks his daughter’s Tessa (Nicola Peltz) shorts are a little too short .
Cade Yeager: “This is a non-dating house. You don’t date, I don’t date!”
Tessa Yeager: “Maybe you should.”
In my most recent analysis I attempt to explain The Leftovers TV show and the amazing episode that was episode 9 that was literally filled with electricity between brother and sister Tommy and Jill. Contains spoilers.
“We would absolutely love to make a circuit, wouldn’t we.”
As you can probably see by all the posts, I have been on a bit of The Leftovers bender lately. But I can’t help it, the show is filled with so many shipable pairings and even twin brothers! And the thing is you could see any of these pairings actually becoming canon since it is a show where anything can happen. Remember this?
Then episode 9 happened, aptly titled “The Garveys at their Best,” and the writers couldn’t have been more right! This one finally reunited the brother and sister pairing for the first time all season and the sparks flew!…Literally!

Siblings (2004): Joe (Alex Campbell) and his siblings have a couple of problems. First off, their stepparents are despicably evil. Secondly, they seemed to have killed them. Now this mixed up mess of half-sisters and step-brothers have to figure out how to dispose of the bodies, cover up the murders, collect their grandfather’s inheritance and somehow stick together as a family — all without getting caught. Not to mention Joe’s incessant need to keep tabs on his promiscuous sister, an eye on the precocious little ones and a lustful watch on the girl next-door (Sarah Polley). Growing up has its complications. Murder’s just one of them. (IMDB)
This movie was recommended to me a couple of times, and I also heard of it before, so I decided to sit down and finally give it a watch! It is a fun dark comedy that definitively has its moments. The chemistry is great between the four siblings and their offbeat personalities really makes the movie. They work very well together and are believable.
This is another Canadian film (Oh Canada!) so you know it is going to have something a bit naughty in it, lol! But to my surprise, it didn’t really go in that direction (too much), but there was definitely some cases of incest.
