Storyline

Sarah, 30, single, well educated, likes art, places a voice ad for phone sex, inviting replies from men under 35, sturdy and sensual. Wilbert, a chubby middle aged architect, leaves a message that he is Thomas, 32 and well formed. A week later, she phones. She likes his voice, he likes her laugh, so once a week she phones him (he's not to know her last name, where she lives, or her number). Portraits emerge of humor and sadness. He presses for details of her life and tells her about his work; she wants these Thursday calls to be fantasy and release, separate from the rest of who she is. The film dramatizes these tensions of lies and truth, connection and distance. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Bad in a fun way
5 September 2004 | by (The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Story about 2 people having phone-sex over a period of time. So, really all you see is 2 people on the phone. Turns out these two have about the flattest characters around...

This is a great story for a short movie of let's say 20 to 30 minutes, not for a full-length 90 minutes or so... The conversations start to get really boring after a period of time... You keep on wondering, when is something new going to happen?

A silly attempt from shock-director Van Gogh (yes, (very distant related), there just isn't anything going on... Still, some funny moments here and there...

4/10.
