Could have been great
20 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

The technical characteristics of the film were wonderful. In the beginning of the movie, I was immediately captured by the beautiful cinematography and soundscape.

However, what I expected from this movie was an exploration of intermittent reinforcement in relationships.

I could have enjoyed this movie a lot more if it had a deeper insight into the sexuality of the two women, instead of playing out as the beginning of a BDSM porn movie.

One good quote of the movie is capable to sum up one of the characters' psyche completely: "Oh, if we could all just say 'Pinastri' to end our torments."

(Pinastri being their safe word)
