Ennui, Why Karl Self Comments are wrong, 19 May 2005
This film is a work of genius, capturing the feeling of Ennui in
explicit detail. The sex scenes are just that, scenes of sex. To show
passion would be to break out of the male leads feeling of boredom or
ennui. The female part if one dimensional to give her no redeeming
features, after all the male wants her but can't understand why he
wants her as she does nothing for him, his pursuit is simply because he
can't control her. If she showed any kind of feelings towards him the
film would be finished. The film is about obsession and not being able
to do anything else because this obsession controls your life and takes
all your energy. I found the film both breathtaking and disturbing in
equal measures. Definitely one to watch.
