User Reviews

Zipper maybe goes deeper...
10 December 2015 | by Dr_SaganSee all my reviews

I had this movie sitting in my drive for awhile. I knew about the premise (i.e. some hot shot lawyer who cheats repeatedly on his wife) and I wasn't interest.

Well...after seeing it, this is overall a good movie because of the strong performances and some semi-provocative little twists near the end that, although predictable, they show some hard truths about the values of the world we are living and how easy is to disavow our values for things that are in the end meaningless.

Despite the numerous sexual encounters of the main character the film is not erotic or sensual but focuses into his fear and his inner struggle with his newly developed passion that might cost him everything, his job, his family.

But the world we are living ...it is what it is, and in the end, everyone will play the role that he or she supposed to play...

Overall: Check it out.
