Breillat adds ‘Anatomie’ to resume

Helmer opts for closed set

PARIS — Provocative Gallic helmer Catherine Breillat has begun shooting her 10th pic, “Anatomie de l’enfer,” based on her sexually explicit novel “Pornocratie.”

Due to the sensitive subject matter, Breillat has opted for a closed set in Portugal, where an eight-week shoot is due to wrap in mid-February.

The helmer’s latest pic continues her exploration of desire, sex and power, promising to be every bit as steamy as her groundbreaking 1999 feature “Romance.” That pic toplined porn star Rocco Siffredi, who co-stars in “Anatomie” with former Chanel model and rising French thesp Amira Casar (both “Would I Lie to You?” pics).

Budget for “Anatomie,” produced by Flach Film, is not known.

Pic will be released in 2003 and distributed in Gaul by Rezo Films. It is being sold worldwide by Flach Pyramide Intl.
