Even though the film has not indicate the year, the mise en scène places the story in the early 1970s.
Some cars that weren't in the production until the mid-1980s were visible in the parallel parking scene: Rover 800 (production started in 1986), third-generation Audi 100 (1982-1991), Volvo 245 (updated taillamps from 1981 onward), and second-generation Volkswagen Jetta (1984-1992).
The type of external rear-view mirrors and bumpers on Jaguar XJ driven by Jerôme (Shia LeBeouf) indicates a Series III (1979-1992) while the period-correct Jaguar XJ (Series I or II) should have chrome mirrors and bumpers. See more »

The movie was a lot promising, it could have been a nice social-drama.
Instead it had way too much needless porn scenes. While it may be important because of the movie, its not important to see the details and not just skip it.
Plot was bad, some parts (no spoilers) were more bad than the others.
It could have been a shocking, rebellious movie. Instead its a cheap, irritating movie that twists the sexuality of human into a repulsive evil act. In my opinion it went to far, to challenge the viewer's morality but it was rather pointless and unsatisfying. It was a waste of time just out of curiosity to see how bad it can be.
