  • saitosouta's rating of the film Original Bliss

    Acesta descrie despre o expediție îndârjită prin pustiu golaș, prevalând la semunul de dispărerea Dumnezeului, al unei femeie care e copleșită cu nihilistă inexistentă de sex și al unui bărbat care e frământat de către extremitate deznădăjduită de sex pentru a suprapune credință și întăritor. Devastator realmente.//今作が描くのは、性の虚無的な欠乏に打ちひしがれる女と性の絶望的な過剰に苛まれる男、2人が信仰と身体を重ね合わせるため、神が消え去った時代に広がる不毛な荒野を巡る壮絶な旅路だ。凄まじく胸を打つ1作。
