I think you're absolutely right, thats why I was so touched by it
I saw this tonight at GIFF 2012 with director present. She said a lot liked it but also a lot hated it. I really liked the honesty of this film. I think that a lot of one night stands ends like Clara's does, and the feelings are the same. What happens in this film is not only what should happen, but it shows what a lot of young people like themselves are coping with, but never shares with anyone. Excellent debute.
Not quite the dazzling debut many have refered to being taken in by the raw sex and brave performances. Not the most orginal concept; it's been done and better by features like "In Bed", Virgo's "Lie With Me" and Winterbottom's "9 songs". Strong performance by young Catherine de Lean but the character just doesn't ring true for how could one not be repulsed enough to leave after the characters first confrontation.
