This is such a sugar coated way of depicting a film that's about zoophilia! Reading the IMDB plot is alot more harrowing than wasting 80 minutes watching this. Romanticizing zoophilia really? Give me a break! Stick with what it really is!
Romanticizing and kitschy visuals in re-enacted pseudo-documentary style combined with a horrible, nearly permanent use of slow music recalling the atmosphere of a soft porno: I think it's not the right way to approach this subject.
I want to like this documentary more than I did. It presents something really interesting, it's shot beautifully, and I think somewhere in here with some different editing there's a really good movie. It just doesn't quite have that spark, that emotional core that it needs to make these people seem sympathetic (or, really, interesting). Worth a watch because there's a lot to like, but I really wish it were better.
I will say that some of the cinematopraphy is good, but doesn't disguise that even taking the subject matter in to account its a poorly done documentary that uses landscapes and slow motion to drag things out. Even then just what the fuck, a get the feeling the creators of this realised they were wasting their film making skills half way and just went with it as some avant garde bullshit that's about horsefucking!
