Highly recommended
29 March 2016 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

It's really rare to find a good movie, mais voilà, that's one! Excellent acting and great story telling. The time line has a lot of back and forth which might be a bit confusing at the beginning but one gets the hang of it quickly.

There's some reviewers who call this a sad movie, but there's nothing sad about it. Quite the opposite, our lead goes through stations in her life we all go through, trying to make sense out of something that's hard to make sense of - and sex for sure is something that takes a while to figure, make that quite a long while. Our lead actress does a magnificent job leading us through her world.

A very sensible and sensitive film, hats off to all involved.
