Wonder, what kind of audiences this movie was intended for
Seen at the Viennale 2016: maybe this movie should be a joke and nothing else, who knows? But for a joke it is not short enough. As a comedy not entertaining enough. Shall I take it seriously? In the 1960's and 70's a lot of movies have been produced that equaled freedom of sexuality with feminism and female emancipation. Somehow this movie could be seen as dialog with this gone era. A girl attracts a man until he gives in and couples with her finally. But after they finish - as a feminist independent action? - the girl leaves the man and goes for the next one. Anyway, this movie is: boring. Especially the last never ending sexual intercourse.
