exceedingly well made, 19 April 2013
Author: christopher-underwood from United Kingdom

This is an exceedingly well made 'pink', if indeed it properly qualifies as one. It is at once, sexy and nasty, with some superbly shot sex scenes and some terrible violence (of the setting fire to naked women variety). Some reviewers have referenced, 'giallo' and there is certainly an element here, with the edgy violence, black leather gloves and the general air of dream/nightmare. A slight blurring of the real and unreal and done with such style and confidence we never loose track of the goings on, even if at times we might prefer to. Every frame looks good, even the building sites and the feeling of desolation, even the nastiness and the scenes of transgression, seemingly endured and enjoyed in equal part.
