strangely robert suggested to go to the movies – quite a rarity as he prefers going to music events – and now i realise why. several of my friends saw this film, highly recommended it for the visual aspect, but did warn me that it was a bit raunchy.
raunchy is an understatement…… but it is a visually ravishing film, beautiful cinematography, beautiful clothes and certainly beautiful actors. it also happens to be an entertaining script with a twist, cleverly written, with just about everything, drama, romance, sex, torture, intrigue and a bit of humour. personally i thought it didnt need to be so explicit, but having recently been to that lecture on japanese erotic painters from centuries ago, i completely understand the fascination. anyhow, i do recommend it and it certainly is one for the partners!
