Adam Driver sings while performing cunnilingus in ‘Annette’

He's a cunnilingus crooner, if you will

Every year at the Cannes Film Festival, there’s an entry that generates buzz for a particularly bizarre scene. There’s nothing like good ol’ French cinema to push some boundaries. In 2021, comedy-drama musical “Annette,” starring Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver, seems to be the entry taking the mantle.

Directed by Leos Carax (“Holy Motors”), “Annette” follows the story of stand-up comedian Henry (Driver) as he falls in love with world-renowned opera singer Ann (Cotillard). Their love is passionate and their life together is glamorous. That changes when Ann gives birth to their daughter Annette (who Vulture calls a “big-eared, creepy puppet baby”).

The premise hardly brings any justice to what will actually go down in the film. Put Carax’s signature eccentricity and pop and rock band Sparks’ Ron and Russel Mael original music together and, voilà, you have Driver singing into Cotillard’s vagina twice

In a press pack interview, Cotillard shared that Carax had them singing live on the set (like the cast of the “Les Miserables” movie musical). “It added to the complexity of the set: We found ourselves singing in very complicated positions, doing back-crawling or mimicking cunnilingus; acrobatic positions that technically modify [the way you sing],” said the actress.

Apart from cunnilingus, Cotillard teased that we’ll also get to see a bit of “sexual tickling.” “We strangely never see people f*cking or doing trivial things in musical comedies,” she added. If you think that Adam Driver is hot, there are a lot of shirtless scenes here that look way better than the one in “The Last Jedi.”

Currently, the film is fresh on Rotten Tomatoes with an 88% score. Can the “surreal and avant-garde rock opera” live up to all the hype? Find out for yourself when “Annette” becomes available on Amazon Prime Video on Aug. 20.
