Soon after is arrival he meets Sophie, a sexy, smart, soulful, nurse who helps dying people transition to the after world. She and Michael instantly have chemistry albeit combative. Sophie has a secret. Her other job is being a dominatrix. Throughout the film, Sophie is nursing a little girl, Anais, who is dying of leukemia. Written by Anonymous (IMDB.com).
I'm really not sure what to make of this film... but I know how to make you intrigued by it: After Fall, Winter is a film about BDSM that will make you cry.
Yep. You read that correctly. I feel very confused and slightly awkward by this but by the end I was an emotional wreck.
With a deeply emotional story under the layers of sex, handcuffs, and dominatrix, After Fall, Winter is mostly ridiculous and mediocre but often well acted and engaging. It's crazy how it does it as you will be thinking how bad it is whilst watching it, but when it comes to an end you'll find yourself quite moved.
I'm not sure what to make of this jumbled film. It has perhaps the bleakest ending I've ever seen.
