This movie disappointed me a bit, as I expected a lot more when I saw the trailer. We cannot say it's totally disinteresting, because I think the main idea is good and quite original, but the way this movie was done is far from being great. It's too slow and dialogues hardly exist. At some moments it turns out boring
In my opinion it pretends to be a complex movie and tries to mess up with ours heads when it totally changes the feelings which are supposed to exist in a relationship between two people just by sex, but it didn't achieve that goal, because it's too superficial at some crucial moments and characters aren't themselves too deep. There isn't really a plot, but a sequence of scenes, most of them sex scenes! But just sex is not enough to keep a relationship or even to make a movie (except if it is a porno ), and sometimes this film seems to be just sex!
Beside that, the entire "story" is too centered in the main character. From the beginning it seems we are seeing a monologue, a "secret diary", where she tells us her intimacy, her desires, her obsession about sex and, most important of all, her incapacity to love! But her "secret diary" is not made from words sex is the only way to communicate! Once again, it's not enough
