"Parents don't have sex!" (too true)
18 May 2012 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

"SM-rechter" is probably the most heart-warming S&M-related movie you'll see in your life. The movie features plenty of whipping, piercing, chaining and even branding, but I mainly remember a beautiful yet unconventional love story. A successful man putting everything he has at stake for the love of his wife, that's just touching no matter how much explicit rough sex it requires. The fact that the movie's based on a true story probably makes the two main characters even more compelling, it's not just a movie (though I have no idea how accurate the portrayal is, I wasn't there). "SM-rechter" is a movie that can make people talk, and it seems that was what the director was going for. And even in the unlikely case that this movie doesn't make you think, at least it's pretty entertaining throughout. Not bad at all.
