Storyline

Set in their ways, even NORA and EVAN's arguments are routine and passionless. The arrival of a mysterious Valentine card opens the first crack in their long, frozen marriage. Repressed feelings of regret over lost and wasted opportunities bring to the surface the emotional scars from their traumatic pasts. Now they fight for the courage to share their pain so they can connect with each other one last time. Unable to confront her own past, Nora presses Evan to reveal deeper and deeper layers of his own emotional wounds through the use of sexual experimentation. Slowly she whittles away at Evan's protective armor until he is practically reliving the very cause of his emotional injury. Only then is she able to reveal to Evan and to the audience her complicity in her past sins and the guilt she still harbors. A parallel story between young lovers Amber and Joel show the bureaucratic hoops they must jump through for their marriage license. Their sexual relationship is carefree, a dark ...

Beautifully filmed and produced: this millennium's 1984
26 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

I had low expectations of this film when I chose to watch it, and I was quite overwhelmed by its depth and relevance. Set in a future world where even bananas are banned for being suggestive, relationships and marriage are tolerated only when approved and regulated by the state. It contrasts the lives of two couples - one elderly approved married couple in crisis and two happy young lovers seeking to marry. Ihe sets, locations, lighting, dialogue, camera angles: everything is so carefully crafted to contrast these couples, to depict the essence of their relationships, and to make us care for them and feel their pain. For days afterwards I was exploring this film in my mind, and its parallels to modern life: its very political message. When a state, even with the best intentions, tries to control our personal and family lives it will inevitably end up damaging them. Suddenly I regret not standing up more for GLBT rights, refugee rights, abortion rights, religious tolerance and so many other instances where nation states still deny citizens their freedom of choice. It has changed me, and in my opinion that makes it more than a good film, it makes it a great film.
