Storyline

M is a work of art that explores the relationship between sexuality and death. These two appear to be opposite forces, but in fact they merge in all of us, disguising the fear of death or the desire to die, the world of Eros and Thanatos. In M the character of Marilyn Monroe should be seen as a symbol of this interpenetration. The actress's death is as famous as her sexuality and thus sets a perfect example of how the ancient bond between sex and death is being forever mystified and exploited by the popular culture. M attempts to explore this phenomenon in a much more personal level. All the events in the work are fictional and they are set in no particular place or time. The work consists of film material that has been produced on and off in a time period of four years, beginning in March 2013 to December 2017. The footage was shot mainly in the home and grounds of Casa das Musas Art House in Nazare, Portugal. Other shooting locations were Litibu village in Mexico and Uusikaupunki, ...

Stay away
4 March 2020 | by Myssi from McFSee all my reviews

It's only weird and graphic footage slapped together and made some screaming on the background. The forced art aspect make no sense and the movie aspect is so amateur that it hurts. Not ever the promise to see Anna Eriksson nude can keep me watching this dumpster fire.

Stay away!
