Menage a trois and man-boy love are just two of the provocative elements in this bizarre love triangle from Japan. Mayumi is a shy, awkward, and narcoleptic high school student who one day decides to end it all by throwing himself off of his high school's roof. Before he can carry out the act, he is rescued by his teacher, Mr. Murai, who then proves by raping the boy that he's in no rush to be canonized. Unexpectedly, the violation gives Mayumi a new lust for life, and he subsequently shows up at his teacher's house wanting more. Mayumi has company: Marii, his female schoolmate, also wants a piece of Mr. Murai. What ensues is a three-pronged relationship that alternately takes the form of father/children and lustful lovers. French Dressing was screened at the 2002 Philadelaphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival.
