A Confusing Way to Lose Virginity
27 December 2016 | by laraphaSee all my reviews

I found the film very confusing. Not for the plot itself, but for the way the main character behaves. She is determinate to lose her virginity, but at the same time is too afraid of the process. This is perhaps because she hasn't done it in a proper time, and finds the thing very difficult. At the same time, she is haunted by the writings she saw on a closet room door, stating that it only takes a prick entry to do the matter. The confusion is turned worse by the way the character wears, a mix of clothes not at all combining. The settings are also a mix of things confusingly sorted, as is the local where she works, a bunch of old books confusedly arranged. In a word, she lives in a mess. A little order is established by the way she relations with the gay characters of the film. In particular, what gives her confidence is her relation with Jimmy (Mitchell Butel) perhaps the most centered character of the film…up to a level. Jimmy believes in love, and tries to give She the same confidence. But in this confused movie, he too will be involved in the general confusion, and surrender. As a whole, I would recommend this flick, but be aware, for maybe you will be lost in all the mess it has.
