Setting: the singles scene at a futuristic pick-up bar. Portrait of guys and dolls on the make, fortified by martinis or cosmos as they desperately try to connect with another willing partner. They're all hungry;you can practically taste it. But it's a meat market with a difference. For most, their only contact with the opposite sex is a phone line and TV monitor. Definitely a safety net for those with second thought;till between the turn-ons and put downs, they emerge from their chat rooms to meet the perfect match. Yet these swinging singles aren't Brittany or Brad wannabees.

I loved the film ,dynamic and haunting, it managed to keep me gripped and perplexed until its wonderful, unexpected and tender climax.The final look ,which without saying a single word managed to say everything, really moved me. At no matter what age we may meet, our bodies and minds are home to all kinds of desires and fantasies. Physical decay may reduce our movements, but not our anxieties ,dreams and fantasies. Like how a single look can hold so much desire and happiness, defeating the passing of time and reminding us that elderly people with their decaying bodies,are still dealing with the most intense human passions in their minds. Brilliant ,deeply thoughtful and a cry of hope. A beautiful film ,wonderfully sensitive. Thank you.!
