As the recent (5.26) anti-gay marriage demonstration in Paris showed, French conservatives are strongly against any kind of public acceptance or endorsement of gay behavior. So it’s not surprising that reactionaries in the Parisian suburbs of Versailles and Saint-Cloud freaked when posters for Alain Guiraudie‘s Stranger By The Lake were put on view. Deadline‘s Nancy Tartaglione reports that town officials have had the posters pulled after being “harassed” by phone calls and emails. I’m not particularly aroused or enthralled by the poster, but it’s nicely designed. Will I see Guiraudie’s film? Probably, but I honestly don’t like to watch guys eff each other…no offense.
