Happened to watch this movie late night when it was aired on World movies channel. At the outset the director needs to acknowledged for holding the reigns quite well and literally does a tight-rope walking to ensure that the movie doesn't classified as a Tinto Brass or worse a soft-porn.
The complexities of a modern family is portrayed effectively. The relationship between the members of the family is fleshed out effectively yet managing to touch-base on the taboo. The wedding forms the baseline of the story and the events built around it come about naturally (family dinner, shopping, wedding dress, night-out etc). And its precisely these factors which give aesthetic feel to it. On technical front the movie is rich in the camera-work and lighting. The usage of mirrors, shadows and following the character would seem Kubrick inspired.
The director chose his way of ending the story which is purely is his prerogative which perhaps for a few it might seem Over-the-top.
PS:: And an apt title indeed.
