A bit slow, but interesting
26 September 2001 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Overall the film was enjoyable, but I found it a bit slow, and found that the plot didn't really arrive at a conclusion. Loin is also filmed in the jittery camera style, which since I was sitting close to the screen gave me a head-ache. The love story between Sara and Serge was well portrayed though. It is not a standard love story, which is what provides its strength: Serge has many weaknesses, and the fact that they love each other nonetheless creates a strong psychological/human/emotional situation.
