While America suddenly got all lathered up with S&M thanks to the colossally unit-shifting "Fifty Shades Of Grey," it would appear that overseas, that kind of kink is hardly something worth raising an eyebrow about. While Hollywood grapples with who to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, France has already delivered a similarly-themed erotic thriller, "Tied," with hardly so much as a shrug. The clip is available below and while it doesn't really show any skin, it might still make you blush.

While America suddenly got all lathered up with S&M thanks to the colossally unit-shifting "Fifty Shades Of Grey," it would appear that overseas, that kind of kink is hardly something worth raising an eyebrow about. While Hollywood grapples with who to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele, France has already delivered a similarly-themed erotic thriller, "Tied," with hardly so much as a shrug. The clip is available below and while it doesn't really show any skin, it might still make you blush.

Based on a true story (and not "Twilight" fan fiction), the film stars Laetitia Casta and Benoît Poelvoorde and tells the story of a rich banker, who enters an affair with a young mistress that involves no shortage of domination and submission. He promises to give a large sum of money in exchange for her to be his, but when he flakes on the deal, the tables are turned. As you'll see in this very raunchy clip, when the deal goes south, the dynamics of power are shifted dramatically.

"Tied" is now playing in limited release and is available on VOD and digital outlets such as iTunes, PS3, X-Box, Amazon and Sundance NOW. Watch the exclusive clip below.
