Really good...
7 February 2013 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

It shows the same thing as men in Thailand but from a mirror perspective.

To feel how it is to be a woman seeing how men behave in Thailand was hard to understand and didn't really wanna care. Mostly I think its because one cant relate to it if you don't have attraction to the sex that actually performs the disgusting acts. For example men seeing old men having sex with young girls.

This made me care even more how disgusting it really is and easier to relate to it by watching from the "other" side.

I think both female and male will learn something by watching this that we aren't so much different or better then the other person. Good and bad is seen in both sexes.

This is a great movie - it doesn't hold back. Hold on to your chair... this is gonna be a ride thats gonna make your jaw drop! Worth it...
