Trivia

International distribution deals spiked after the film won the Golden Bear for best film at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival, but producer Ads Solomon expressed concern that a U.S. deal could prove tricky as the movie contains several scenes of hard-core sex. She said in an interview that the film's depictions of sex should be seen in context, especially given the often lax attitudes towards on-screen violence in U.S. movies. "It's happening more and more that violence is accepted [but] nudity is not," she said. "For me, violence affects me emotionally much more than nudity. I'm not saying we should censor this as well; we should consider [the sexual content], not through an algorithm. Things should be considered in their complexity -- there is no complete black and complete white." See more »

Art for art sake

The key line of the movie is about a school teacher sex tape is leaked and she is in danger of losing her job. While it is rather interesting to learn more about Romania via random fact bits and sceneries, cutting movie time in (at least) half would not change anything, the story would be completely safe. So if you are about to watch this movie (although I'm not sure I'd recommend it), keep that trusty pillow and blanked near your side, just in case. Oh yeah, the movie does contain a number of explicit material scenes, but some of them also seemed to be added just for the shock element or an unnecessary filler.
