Watched it a long time ago, but it remains (somewhere in my mind) as a wonderful examination of the male myth of female chastity. As a great story about how the idea of purity can become poisonous and destructive and sabotage desire and love. A metaphore for sexuality in its extreme repressive idealism. And how patriarchy did create non functional dichotomies for women, that both men and women should reject.
