  • saitosouta's rating of the film The Masquerade

    Sex este la fel de inocent ca strigare de "Iubi!" / Sex este la fel de arzător ca susure cutremurând pe arie a râului / Sex este la fel de auster ca nud pe care mâncari sunt aranjate / Sex este silă drăgostindu-ne / Sex este liniște care zădărnicește toate / Sex este univers, el răspândind în gură de armă. // セックスは愛してるという悲鳴のように無邪気で、セックスは水面を揺れる波紋のように熱く、セックスは料理の載る赤裸のように荘厳だ。セックスは愛撫する憎しみだ、セックスは全てを破壊する静けさだ、セックスは銃口に広がる宇宙だ。

  • Joshua's rating of the film The Masquerade

    People may look at this as erotic fluff, but I think that Hladnik outdoes his new wave film Ples v dežju. Best Slovene film for me as of today, but the night is young. Sexy and daring for the first hour, and astoundingly wise by the end. Is it too much to ask for a criterion BR?
