Dresses, lipsticks, sex - the "perversions" (and neuroses) of Eve, a young, very successful lawyer. Her days are a tightrope act between extreme eloquence and frosty toughness on the one side, and scaring vulnerability on the other. The climax of her career shall be the possibly forthcoming appointment as a judge, but this step seems to be interrupted by her kleptomaniac sister Mad who is arrested after one of her raids. Eve travels to Mad's town to stand by her in the jail. Their struggle about Mad's illness evokes suppressed conflicts. Eve stays at her sister's flat where she meets a girl who fights with her budding femininity.Written by

What are you talking about?

I am somewhat surprised by the scathing reviews posted for what I found a provocative and entertaining work. I do guess that is what makes horse races. I rated the work a 10 and recommend it to anyone looking for something unconventional that requires you to think. I can see not agreeing with the filmmaker's perspective, but that it HAS a perspective is more than most films, and sets this little work apart. The performances were well crafted. Tilda Swinton does what she does best - gets under your skin and makes you squirm a bit. She is thoroughly uncomfortable to watch, by design I believe, and very effective. I think this is a fine little film.
