A brilliant movie for open minded people who admit the fact that their family members have SEX too
6 November 2012 | by (cardiff) – See all my reviews

Sex a basic human necessity and as an adult one must not refrain from discussing it

it may not seem appropriate at first but it can be done if one takes initiative.

humans are sexual beings and after attaining sexual maturity are bound to have sex and enjoy the act of making love.

Its really very hard to digest the fact that our family members and relatives have sex -

oh YES lets admit it !!! Our parents,uncles aunts, brothers sisters, grand parents(O yeah old people like it too) get intimate between sheets behind closed doors.

This movie deals with such subjects which focuses on the sex life of a family basically the siblings of a family.

This movie is beautifully done and the chemistry between the siblings , parents and lovers just seems too realistic.

Nudity is shown wherever its necessary.

A movie to be watched with broad minded people who admit all human beings are sexual animals.

The hand held camera work is very elegant and has managed to capture details such as the facial expressions with panache.

I enjoyed this movie with my friends and cousins.

Hope you enjoy it too......
