review by
Mike Haberfelner

Down-on-her-luck filmmaker Louisa (Julie Webb) meets down-on-his-luck pianist Luke (Patrick Green), and at first it seems it's their similar experiences that draw them to one another - but soon romance blossoms out of this, which is only marred by the fact that he refuses to give up his home in another town where he lives with his ex-wife for their children's sake. Also, Ati (Donny Persons), the man Louisa lives with, is not at all into her having a relationship.

At the same time, architect Michael (Benjamin Farmer) meets painter Sylvia (Maria Allred), and the two start a relationship with many parallels to Louisa and Luke's - but soon Michael finds more and more pleasure in fetish games, and he starts to enjoy hurting, tieing up and humiliating Sylvia ...

With her relationship with Luke going seemingly nowhere, Louisa decides to make a film about the experience - and one of her ways to come up with the money for it is to become a performer at a strip club, something nearly nobody in her circle of friends really condones, but she perseveres ...


If above synopsis sounds anything like your typical love story or a TV "movie of the week", rest assured, it is neither, rather a labyrithine piece of avant garde moviemaking that finds joy in taking apart its core story's narrative structure, leaving seminal plotpoints only hinted at, jumping in and out of scenes at (only seemingly) random points, creating parallels between its narrtative threads that suggest that one's only a reinterpretation of the other, and thus keeping the audience guessing all the way through its running time - until the finale puts the whole thing on a meta-level. Now this alone is interesting enough, but what makes the film fascinating is that on a directorial level, Maria Allred doesn't treat its story (and subject matter) as a pure exercise in avant garde filmmaking but puts her heart into the movie, which easily translates to the audience - also thanks to a solid ensemble cast of course.

Really worth a look - just be warned, this isn't your usual popcorn movie!
