As fascinating as it's disturbing
6 April 2006 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

Sexuality is still a very sensitive theme in cinema. We have tons of movies talking about greed, envy, family, success and love, but there are still very few examples for religious or sexual themes - and even less which combine these two. There is a reason for that. Sexuality is considered as dirty, Religion is considered as very private. It takes some wit to ignore both, and go deep down the rabbit hole to find some answers.

"The passion of life" is an independent production which tries to shed a sophisticated light at this topic. And unlike many other, they manage to do so without using sexuality as an eye catcher, but as the very key to the main theme.

Indeed this movie is NOT about BDSM, it is no blockbuster, and it is not trying to be. It is a movie with a strong connection to theatre and to philosophy. If you look for a kinky SM flick, look somewhere else. If you ever wondered if there is a deeper reason for sex than just breeding, look here.

For me, the most interesting part of this movie were the deep and intense discussions about lust and sin, which were far from being the typical black/white stereotype. And all the actors were quite charming in their struggle to fill their life with some sense - like we all are trying to do. Especially Marina Anna Eich as "Eva" convinced me as young, pretty successful woman, who is experiencing her new life with an amazement like Alice in Wonderland.

Don't expect an easy movie here. But in my opinion there is little chance that you ever will get such a deep look at sexuality in a cinema again any time soon.
