The one we need
21 June 2020 | by shibollethSee all my reviews

I like this film. Despite the fact it is not perfect. I obviously rated it too high, but I did it in its defense, in defense of its energy and of its bravery. There's a lot of bad things that can be said about it. Like, it's a soft porn. Sure, but it doesn't care about it and it makes people oversee that it's better than that, although this film obviously doesn't care if you consider it to be that. You can also say it's depraved (as one other reviewer did) or even debased and, generally, do your worse, whatever that may be. But, I see something else, a story about sexuality, about sexual or even carnal desire that is part of human beings and that makes them better for it (and not worse). As said, film doesn't do things perfectly in portraying this, but it carries the idea of vehicle for that, which is the main female protagonist who symbolizes what is lost between rampant pornography these days and mainstream films (especially those from Hollywood). In that respect, this film is also outcast or trash that can't enter on the main door in film industry or in culture in general. With all its obvious flaws it's also a good trash we need very much because it says sexuality is humanity we still, in 21st century, refuse to acknowledge. Of course, this film is also an easy prey for every feminist view out there and even for its adversaries on conservative or patriarchal side. Feminisms and patriarchy are those opposite and even antagonistical numbers that regulate our gender dynamics and our relationship to sexuality and they are all over the place in culture. They keep telling us what it means to be struggling with one's sexuality. And they both make mistakes which this film displays. Be warned, it does those things in a very simple manner, but its worth for its true devotion to not be scared of it. It offends what a good feminism or a good patriarchy believes but not by way of opposing them but doing what sexuality should be doing. On the end, I want to say that I see also a lot of drama, action and horrors in film. They all display a lot of depravation and humiliation of human personalities and it's hard to sense any contempt for that in culture. But, the real, human transgression still does it. It still offends people, as this film does in its very modest and limited way. Which is good. So, in that respect, this is not and can't be an recomendation, you're on your own.
