Wild (trying to be) and Sad
27 January 2013 | by andrabem-1See all my reviews

Two or three couples go to a cabin in the beach to spend their weekend. They are looking for something new - trying to break out from the straitjacket of their personalities and reach an enhanced pleasure. Swinging partners, sexual games… a restless attempt… ecstasy, where are you?

And eventually a new day dawns, the weekend is over, and they must leave - early morning, the sea and the sky look gray. They need to return to their occupations – sadness, melancholy….

"Weekend" is a very interesting film. I watched it a long time ago, so I don't remember very much the story, but some images of the film remained in my memory. "Weekend" is a Danish film that was released in Brazil in the early 70s, and later on it was shown once in a while in film clubs. If you are expecting sleaze, "Weekend" will disappoint you, but those of you that like deep but simple films should check out this one. In my opinion it's a little gem.
