Some stories maybe more intriguing than others
27 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When watching the first scene I thought it would be a interesting film and to some degree, it's pretty intriguing and had a good start. The movie has 5 different stories but they all have to do with something erotic, some maybe more intriguing than others. So basically it's a anthology film that is mainly centered on the theme of "Eros", even if the characters in each segments aren't really connected. Although the movie can be a bit awkward at times, it also doves into the human psychology. Since some stories are more interesting and intriguing than others and it really isn't a artsy film either although it seems to try, overall it just wasn't that great, but ain't terrible either.
