After I saw this movie I felt like I had to comment on it. Most of the movie takes place in an apartment, where a father lives together with his son. The son is a silent outsider who spends most of his time silent in his room, listening to weird music. The father records amateur porn together with another man and a woman. They are all very sad people. I hadn't read much about the movie before I saw it and at first I thought it was an attempt to strike at the porn industry, so I started to suspect something really stupid. I have never been able to stand that kind of moral in movies. After a while I understood that I was completely wrong. This was for me a movie about good people, not being able to do anything but bad things, because they have been broken down by different tragedies. If you want to see a chocking movie, this one contains plenty of chocking material but nothing that is disgusting in any pleasant way. I have watched too many sick movies to be disgusted by anything that i see on the screen, but the disturbing scenes in this movie didn't bring out a smile like they usually do when you watch something really sick in a movie that is intended only to gross people out. No they really added to the sad feeling and made me think about all the tragic lives out in the real world. The movie grew on me in a way no movie has ever done before and those who call it pointless must have just failed to see the point of it. This movie is definitely not for everyone and if you truly understand it, you will feel like the title after watching it.
