Quotes

Olivia: [Olivia trying different hats on Lorenzo, left by Countess Nunziante in storage] Let me see this one. You know, I was doing photography a while ago. And video art. I even had some exhibitions. I won an important award when I was 18. It's true. I went to Los Angeles.
Lorenzo: Yeah, right.
Olivia: I did. But then I got messed up with dope and I stopped. The pictured that you saw are part of a series called 'I am the Wall'.

From before the revolution to after the revolution
5 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

It could have been a sort of explosive mix between Last Tango in Paris (seclusion) and la Luna (incest, drug-dependence, difficult teenager). A teenager and his older half-sister secluded in a basement for a week get to know each other for the first time. But Olivia's too busy going cold turkey with heroin and Lorenzo lacks audacity. He also suffers from narcissism, so he's not particularly inclined to let go and explore. So no sex, no kinkiness, no demolition of bourgeois values, no anarchy of bodies and minds. All this adds to the realism of the movie, but leaves you a bit disappointed if you expect a Bertolucci-like cinematic experience. I honestly expected to be shocked and disturbed one more time, with style and good taste of course. Instead, the result is quite bland. Certainly, it has its good moments and shots, but the acting leaves much to be desired and the atmosphere is somewhat post-revolutionary.
