Leila:Down on my knees for the very first time I remember there was all this hair in my mouth. I didn't think that was what it would feel like and the guy kept forcing himself in my face saying "please, please, please." He sounded like a little girl...

Canada's best, 28 December 2005
Author: lauracombden from Canada

This movie is the best thing i've seen come out of Canada in awhile. It shows Toronto beautifully, in a way I've never seen in a film before. I think it is a very honest portrayal of women and sex. Not all women, but the women who cannot grasp what love is in relation to sex. This movie is entirely about love, and I think everyone's ridiculous obsession over the sexual content is underestimating the story. Everyone should see this film, it needs our support, and not just because you see sex, inside and out. You should see it because it explores love in a way that has never been captured on screen before. It explores love as something that is slow and developed and tangled up somewhere, as the main character struggles with the idea of its existence. This film could not have worked without the two main actors, who made this movie what it is.
