Probably the best nudist colony / Free sex community movie that we will ever get. Beautifully filmed, relaxingly acted and believable. Ends up in a very dark place that comes from nowhere but feels right at home too in our world where we do not accept our own bodies and other people that have a different lifestyle.
Malgré une respectable interprétation des principaux acteurs, l'ensemble finit par provoquer une léthargie voire une lassitude de par un scénario insipide et languissant qu'un stupide dénouement forcené qui ne fait que confirmer, sans appel et sans rémission, l'inutilité et la banalité d'une réalisation informelle rarement maîtrisée... www.cinefiches.com
I was really enjoying the cruel mocking of the artificial people inside the electric fence and the poetic celebration of the artificially natural people outside of it, until the final segment. I could have loved this film if it only hadn't, like many failed attempts at a revolution, taken the easy way out and resort to violence.
More pretentious than humorous. Promising start with believable characters that devolved and meandered into a stupid farce of an end. May be thats the idea, but that could have been told in a much shorter time. As expressed, the movie only outraged my rational expectation for some meaningful conclusion with a lack of it in an utterly insincere way, reminding myself of the wasted time.
interesting idea but the movie is not properly developed, in my opinion. it always seems that something is going to happen... but nothing happens. also the "sex thing" seems to be left undone. it is too slow... and then suddenly that final? just to finish the movie? i don't get it.
It was refreshing to see a film that explored free-thinking people exploring their selves and their bodies (and the wide assortment of bodies-all equal and fascinating). Such a powerful film until they waste all of the energy built up in a useless and pointless ending (maybe they were trying to give us a tantric lesson?)
W/ its increasingly twisted deadpan humour and preponderance of static medium shots, comparisons of A DECENT WOMAN to the early films of Lanthimos makes sense, but it is definitely its own oddball thing. Juxtaposes a world of circumscribed work and soulless drudgery w/ an idyllic drop-out life of cast off clothes and cares. It gets dark. How dark? I don't want to give too much away, but a revolution is not a picnic.
Belen (Iride Mockert) is a housemaid in a nice household, and her life soon starts to become irrevocably altered when she discovers a nearby nudist swingers club. Passions and freedoms create friction when juxtaposed alongside the more orderly and permitted lifestyles, leading to a surprising finale, albeit one that lacks any real impact.
