They're in their 20s. He works in a video store; he's eager, chatty, sleeps in his car. She rents adult films, looks disheveled, rarely speaks. He chats her up, she brushes him off. He takes her address from store records and contrives to run into her. He rings her doorbell; she tells him to go away. He invents a story of a great-aunt who lives in the building and fakes her death to get the girl to let him in her apartment but holds a butcher knife between them. So it goes and he is no longer living in his car. He presses for a relationship; she ignores him, insults him, or yells. He's persistent, inviting her to get out of the apartment, cooking, washing her hair. Both have demons and, as their stories become more clear, his addictive personality and her sex nausea may be on a collision course.Written by
This movie is strange. It starts slowly and one kind of thinks that it's gonna be a boring movie. But then one starts to watch it and actually live with the lives of the heroes. There's something about this movie. It reminds me of personal experiences of unrequited love or maybe unfullfilled love, when one cannot express all feelings but feels deeply. Sometimes I was wishing for the guy to leave the girl in teh movie, so much abuse was there. But then something opened up, and the girl did a great thing in the end. The guy did a great thing too by being humble and accepting for the most of it, which is a rare thing. Really strange movie, but kind of feels real like it could happen in life.
