Romance (1999)


The imagery imagined by the lead character, one where women expose their lower bodies for the pleasure of men they cannot see, is powerful. It has stayed with me for years, and is one of the main reasons I watched the movie again, though it lasts less than a minute.

The movie itself is pointless, and feels like a waste of time. The characters that are given a chance to speak blubber way too much philosophical non-sense. Many of the scenes are tiring, for example showing the entire sequence of a woman undressing, or being bonded for sexual pleasure... twice. There is likely a message here, but am perhaps too dumb to notice.
