At least I would give the director credit for trying to do something different from all the predictable films coming out every week. I saw it on TV (DVD), but I think the movies like this need the big screen because it brings the characters even closer to you. Dalle is good, with hardly dialogue, its not comfortable to watch the long clumsy sex scene which is the intention of the film, to make you feel a bit sick sometimes. So the director is doing something right. The problem is that I am not convinced that he knows what people feel when they have a life threatening illness or want to die for some reason. Why talk about it in a movie when you don't have anything knew to say about it. But for all movie nerds it is worth seeing.
