Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story)Instrueret afEva Husson
There’s a touch of Larry Clark in the shock value of this feature debut, but it is as much about female sexual control as about male manipulation, and it’s full of sharp observations.
October 02, 2015
Astutely milking its erotic appeal – and treading a delicate fine line this side of exploitation – Bang Gang has a zeitgeisty punch that doesn’t always make for thematic depth, but that marks Husson as a confident stylist and director of young talent, both seasoned and non-professional.
A bit predictable but still somehow believable. It's not a movie with a strong social message and you might not relate to the at-times-sort-of-posh-kids but the acting is quite good and the "uncensored" sex scenes worked for me.
Not a bad movie, if you're looking for something light-hearted and think back to your early teenage years, give this film a try.
Would give 3.5 stars if I could.
There is a lot of sex, yes, but also some plot! The combination of liquid cinematography and electronica soundtrack makes this film gorgeous to behold, particularly in its opening sequence and title crawl.
As if a Larry Clark exploration of teen sexuality had been written with the delicate empathy of Sciamma and shot with the sensual languidness of Coppola. It miraculously avoids being moralizing or an overtly idealized vision of the hedonistic behavior it portrays. The superb soundtrack and gorgeous naturalistically styled cinematography only add to its beauty.
Beautiful actors + photography in this softcore porn drama, based on a "true story" (often a recipe for disaster in a film). True or not, teenagers trying to fuck away their teen ennui just isn't interesting. 3 stars anyway for the production value and the talented young actors (especially Marilyn Lima) who are not to blame for a weak story. A line at the end sums it up: "It's all so profoundly mediocre".
Solid debut feature from director Eva Husson whose intent here may be murky for some but her power to convey beautiful image is very clear. Those getting hung up on the open sexuality here or thinking its a modern safe sex/abstinence p.s.a are severely missing the point. Husson's film is a universal take on teenage detachment and burgeoning sexuality but in a modern context of forced apathy and impersonal technology.
Unprotected sex is dangerous because you suffer from STD. Shooting sex video is dangerous because your life is ruined if it leaks on internet. This movie is kind of cheap sex-ed movie which I was forced to see when I was high school student, isn't it....No? you said this is A Modern Love Story? oh c'mon......
