this film was a nice meditation on relationships, anonymity, intimacy, marriage. you talk, you will spoil it. good acting, i was drown into it. especially because the themes are so real. the film didnt judge, didnt offer real answers. is it the intimacy more important than sex? what counts more for intimacy-their one day a week affaire or the marriage of Claire?
Fucking regardless of how much you are convinced it´s anonymous fun it´s rather a mirror of yourself. It´s about the difference between phantom intimacy you think you`re experiencing but the big question remains whats real or only your imagination. In some ways Ray´s behavior stayed obscure which still strikes me. Could get some more tension in some scenes but overall soberness matches the topic.
"Intimacy"s kühle Optik zeigt viel Tristesse. Er zeichnet grauen Großstadt-Alltag, Anonymität, Kälte und "reglementierte Unverbindlichkeit". Illusionen, Festgefahrenheit von Lebensentwürfen und Abhängigkeit klingen an. Die Geschichte hat ihre emotionalen und inspirierenden Momente, bleibt am Ende, wie die Beziehung der beiden Hauptdarsteller: flüchtig leidenschaftlich, distanziert und wenig nachhaltig befriedigend.
The acting, across the board, was unbearably wooden at times and laughably over-enthusiastic in others. The dialogue wasn't at all that realistic, especially the park scene with Marianne Faithful and Kerry Fox. Whoever wrote that script should be reprimanded. Really, really bad.
You talk. You'll ruin it. You reveal feelings, you're dead. You don't reveal them, dead you are. Damn. Life's no worth. I mean love's not. This is a great film that shows us that. That human feelings, relations (relationships - always did love the ship part on relationships i mean ships of relation, relations that sail on, off of, out of, from, out on ships.It's poetic), etc are a pit, a pitfall, a fall, and A death.
