This is the movie I will be revised. This one of those movies that you want to see and not to hear the paraphrase from friends. Physically, the plot in the film is normal, but how it filled.. ..

Psychology — is the study of soul. This movie about the souls of people, about their internal problems, fears, memories. This unity existential problems. This problem alone.

We sometimes forget that we just the body, but and soul. In the film is presented as reveals the soul of two people in a candid conversation. These conversations the film does not let you get bored because they are relevant for you. The dialogue of the heroine and Graham have him in room — the most powerful scene, here comes the climax, "feeling alive", the revelation. Here comes the GREAT BETRAYAL, the most, which is peace. Which then hurt her husband (which he changed, just physically). But it seems that the husband is not see the difference between physical and emotional cheating, so they decided to rehabilitate himself in the eyes of Graham, boasting that himself, the College years "fucked" his girlfriend. And I would like to ask Him: and what? Lost so beautiful and so sincere, deep, with love how then we find out, woman. And sex made of fun, because the next man was not as deep, thin.

The love that the tenderness that we can see the final scenes at the against Graham — here is LOVE.

The main advantage of the film — DIALOGS. Such candid, personal. And these revelations occur in the beginning, the people who do not friends. From the question: is that possible?

It is very difficult in the modern world to be truly open to another person.

The film is not boring, absolutely not boring, the actions of occurring mainly in one room. In the room 2 person. And you feel a part of this communication, what these people tell you project to your life, recognize yourself in some situations. It turned out as if viewer the office is very subtle psychologist. It turned out a session of psychoanalysis.

The music in the film? I as it is not noticed. Yes to which it here? It is the psychologist's office, the silence and the voice of revelation.

The 100 I spent benefit for myself, I was analyzed together with the main characters. They said, but I kept them situation in itself. The session ended, but I wanted to continue.

Actors? I'm not a film critic, and a simple viewer. I like played a was natural. Especially charmed the main character Graham, have he has a very interesting face, lips. Have it is a facial expression.. . hardly there is a word, not can explain.

Andie MacDowell. Knew her as a model. Now as the actress. Nothing I can say the movie was believable, and so, Andy played great.

To watch or not to watch the movie? Well, see for yourself. Here basic tags: love, relationships, psychology of relationships, the disclosure of the soul, candid conversations, emotional cheating, the person and his internal problem

The film is based on a sincere dialogue, in them the main point of the film. If you person, and not the spirit, most importantly for you that the children were well fed, but not "pillow talk before sleep", then pass by. Perhaps you will naskuchit these fights a man with their internal problems. I they have Neskuchny, so I was part of these dialogues and a lot useful made of them for yourself.

Jesus, how come sometimes to fall me similar films? It is the tape is just as knife veins all — in a new perception of the film industry!

All order. Let's start with that movies this blatant theme of me never attracted, because I predubezhdenie that there's nothing deep in this to be maybe just a kinky fantasy nursing Directors. Not there it was.

The more I watched film, the more non-separable I watched characters in florid installation and a strange dialogue.

I don't even know some adjectives, metaphors to choose to describe how impressed me this made. Such a combination of a clumsy, simple and vulgar with something elusive, almost French, elegant.

What is this movie? He first of all honesty. About honesty with yourself. About the decisions, he feelings barriers. This film is about Features a capital V.

Among all the filth, action, drama Thriller — it's just a fountain in the desert. I totally thrilled.

Glances, touches in the final scene — that's fine. As just went to the credits, I have started to write this review, I am some kind of raving, nervous energy.

I saw life turned the other side.

And it's

This film is not can not to captivate the spectator: it looks at one breath, it fine, full, candid, but not vulgar. Such paintings are little ("Exotica" by Atom Egoyan, for example, "Nudes" Michael Lee "car Crash" Cronenberg...), so I appreciate it and reconsider. The traditional theme of love, which is often exploited, as here one is not, but is the theme of needs in love. Each of the characters trying to brighten up dry everyday world, not being able to analyze yourself and your life. Without catalysts characters are not necessary.

Heroes and is a psychologist, Ann, Graham, Cynthia, the guy in the bar — makes you smile, have in them some charm and unspoken personality. The exception is John, but it should be it is only the praise of actor Peter Gallagher, who managed to keep at me in the entire film that it really is "completely in the shit".

The first advantage of the film — dialogs. And they all a touch of intimacy, even if they are not sex. Interesting to see the relations of the sisters, which began as a competition, and in the end it becomes clear what a pity imbued extrovert Cynthia to popular, beautiful Anne, seeing negligible happiness in the life of her sister. Strange to think that once John and Graham were friends, but John with the time was dragging to place in society career, stability, and Graham as artist — became representative colorsbits generation. Ann and Graham seem so different, suddenly become close — they share very strange views on sex, which for them obviously means more than just boning + "marginality" in the characters. As I smiled, watching the crumbling relationship of John and Cynthia, who really too bright, creative, sassy, smart for this grey and the vulgar man as John. Not be the film guy, spending a lot of money in bar, to be able to look at Cynthia, "Sex, lies and video" was incomplete.

The original idea to shoot an interview about sex camera — draws on video art. With the weakest hysterical literature 2 years ago, fragments of video art in the film were a pleasant surprise. The film is not devoid of aesthetic sophistication, the atmosphere is sustained for the minimum number of characters, the lack of extra urban landscapes, zapominayuschimsya quotes, for example: "All too much easier", "Prettier than Ann? — No. Other", "Rubbish. I think about the garbage..." (just an oxymoron).

Recommend attentive, able to analyze the audience, not prejudiced against good films on sexual topics.
