Repressed Fantasies and Reality
Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
10 July 2009
The TV reporter Dade (Kevin Knotts) lives with the successful anchor of
television Samantha Davis (Clare Carey). Dade is affected after a fatal
incident during his coverage of a bank robbery followed by a hostage
situation and changes his perspective of life. When he meets the
professional dominatrix Jennifer a.k.a. Dominique (Simmone Mackinnon)
by chance, he becomes obsessed by the mysterious woman, affecting his
relationship with Sam. Dominique also falls for him but she realizes
that their relationship conflicts with their different lifestyles.
After the death of a man that stalks Dominique, she moves to another
place and Dade seeks her out.
"Submission" is a weird romance about repressed fantasies and reality.
The idea is great but the movie does not work well, limited not only by
the extremely low budget but mainly because of the poor screenplay that
does not develop well the characters and the situations. Further the
eroticism is very limited despite of the theme and the tiresome edition
with excessive use of fadeout is annoying. With minor improvements this
movie could be better and better. My vote is five.
