A little boring and silly sometimes (I mean, really--a priest Skyping, that million-year long Band of Horses music video interlude, etc), and I wasn't totally convinced by the love story, but nothing's hotter than 100 minutes of sexual repression culminating in a rainy sex scene. It was basically a classy art house porn.
