Was it good for you?
13 January 2007 | by (South Korea) – See all my reviews

I found so much to like about this movie, because I thought it was such a true reflection of life as many of us know it.

First there's this girl. She's no million-dollar babe but she's cute and she's sexy enough for men to find her desirable. And she's just working her way through the menu. Many of us find ourselves young and okay-looking, and we don't know what is out there but we know we like a good time in bed, and we'll go with what comes along because we're horny and we have itches we like to scratch.

And then, out of nowhere, unsought and uninvited, something in the form of someone comes sneaking in, and creeping under our skins, from nowhere, and strange things and strange strings start to pull at the heart, until we suddenly realize that penises and vaginas all point north and south, but there is something more to be held and cherished. We suddenly find a face we like to wake up next to in the morning, and there's this shape and this warmth and this musky fragrance left over from our union that just feels and smells so good it brings a smile to our faces and is enough to have us get up and go put the coffee on, every morning.

That's what I loved about this movie. And that's what is so very special about this movie. If you are old enough to have lived through that sense of invincibility and invulnerabilty that comes with the swagger of youth, and then found yourself lucky enough to meet and get to love a person with enough heart and soul and beauty to keep you coming back for more, then you appreciate the beauty of this movie.

More power to you Stella! Where were you when I needed that special and beautiful and unique kind of someone and that kind of love to come along and bite me in the ass, and keep me waking up next to her ande wanting to make her coffee? My baby. It was good for me!

And if this kind of beautiful epiphany hasn't happened to you, you don't know what you've missed, so keep knocking the movie until it happens for you! :-)
