The plot is simple two girls, one with yellow hair and one with orange hair pick up a guy in a club and they end up involved with him. When its revealed that he has a girlfriend he wants to return to things get ugly.
I'm of mixed feelings about this movie. Its a beautiful movie with sexy women, a tense story and a great artistic and music sense (I love the club scenes). The problem is that somehow it never comes together enough to be as good as the combination of its parts.Don't get me wrong its good, especially if you like sexy thrillers. I'm just annoyed that in some ways it simply refuses to be more than just an exploitive thriller instead of rising to something else, which it seems capable of doing since it has all of the material there. This isn't a bad thing, since the film as it stands now is a very good thriller, but some how I thought it could be and should be more, though I don't know what it would have taken to make it cross the line into greatness.
Reservations aside, I think this is worth a shot especially if you like sexy thrillers. Certainly its infinitely better than most of the American and Euro crap that shows up late on Friday and Saturday nights on stations like Cinemax on their "adult" movie blocks.
