Sex as Joy
29 April 2005 | by simonetosoniSee all my reviews

The love story among a grow up woman and an under aged guy. The movies starts from the moment she is released from jail, and follows the next steps of the love, and sex, affair. In the surrealistic ending of the movie, all the main characters are called to express their point of view on the uncommon relation of the couple. Even though not formally perfect, this movies scores a point. It gives a great representation of sex as joy and communication, without being too-sweetly romantic. Nothing is "stolen" to any one, no tragic-ending is waiting there to punish people that give themselves to passion. It gives a new, and joyful, point of view to the whole thing. Deserves to be seen...
