Roger Ebert's pithy take on French Sexuality

In Roger Ebert's review of the 1999 film Romance he says: "It is said that for the French, wine takes the place of flirting, dining takes the place of seduction, smoking takes the place of foreplay and talking takes the place of sex."

That's pretty funny.

(Rather suprisingly he gives this film a thumbs up.)

Also, I looked up this film for 2 reasons. I recall an erotic trailer for it when I say Run Lola Run back in '99, but I never saw the actual movie. Much like the question about tattoos, I decided to satisfy my curiosity here as well. In addition I was reminded of this mystery by a new French film out called District B-13 which has gotten rave reviews.
