Different - Held my attention to the end
Was browsing for something to watch when this popped up. The title certainly got my attention. I decided to tune in for a few minutes. It became a bit hypnotic in the way it held my attention. There is NO DIALOG in this movie, yet the long looks exchanged between the young, attractive leads told volumes. Shot on location in Amsterdam, the film is broken in to several chapters which sort of reflect the story arch of the two women first noticing each other on a train, meeting and coming together. There are a couple of locker room scenes, but the nudity is not gratuitous. And while not a true lesbian love story in any traditional sense, there were moments that border on erotic and certainly are sexually charged. This is a talented director and I applaud the attempt at something different. I saw shades of Nicolas Refn and a whiff of David Lynch. Overall, I was surprised how much I liked it. If you can get past the lack of verbal dialog, maybe you can too.
