Not seeing it doesn't mean you're missing anything
24 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There isn't much to say. This movie is a pseudo-lesbian themed movie that is well acted and directed, but beyond that has practically no substance.

Divided into four stories without any real connecting theme or element, it seems to deprive the viewer of any gratification that other similar movies provide. This is not to say it isn't without any merit. All the actors do a good job, especially Sandrine Pinna and Karena Lam, despite either of them not really having much to do. The final story is the well directed, but it is also possibly the most hollow. Likewise, the pacing and scenery is good, same for most of the music and sound.

The only real complaint, is just after watching it you don't come away with anything substantial and maybe entertaining. That is a pretty big complaint.
