A multiple prize winner at both Cannes and Sundance, Steven Soderbergh’s feature debut concerns a man who films women discussing their sexuality on camera and his relationship with two very different sisters who are both sleeping with the same man.
This revolutionary debut from the eclectic Steven Soderbergh won the director the Palme d’Or at age 26! A reminder of just how bracing and fresh indies were in their true heyday.
Morbidly comedic and genuinely arousing. This film acts like you, when you talk about sex. You were evasive and jesting while keeping your another ear to the topic, it is a subject you would like to talk about while at the same time distancing you personal self from the topic..But it is impossible, because the subject of sex will always be inherently personal.
In my sense, this movie is a story of a desperate searching of a person with whom life would be meaningful or a meaning for life. It should better be named as "soulmate".
Also, the actors and actresses reflected the characters perfectly. Although the story was not bitter, it was piquant.
I thought this film was really interesting by it's portrait on couple's insight of sex and how humans react to it in the different levels. Every character was well thought of and brilliantly portrait on this most excellent screenplay about human interactions. I did feel the movie was slow and pasty, not because it was bad but how the scenes were created and how it was given to us, so I have mixed feelings about this.
