A nice French movie
21 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Many people like erotic movies. Many people do not like hardcore movies, simply because hardcore movies are not artistic. I am one of these people, and I like this movie.

Another movie that is mimic to this one is another French movie called Baise Moi. However, Q is more artistic and better made than Baise Moi. Not only with better casting, but with better storyline.

The close up shooting in bathroom is impressive, it perfectly demonstrated the beauty of woman. I truly like the director's taste. Those scenes are beautiful and unforgettable.

The story is not complicated but the thought beyond that is very true: a man and a woman, when live together, must be compatible and matched each other both mentally and physically. If it doesn't happen, a true love would not be generated. And the two people will get in trouble if they still stay together.

I would give an 8 out of 10 for this movie.
