I really hate this film. It's a very sensual film and that's really about it. Misogynistic and sexist at its core disguised in lush cinematography. Whatever life lessons it was trying to portray is terribly misguided. Even Belluci's performance couldn't save it.
This is the kind of writing on father/son relationships I would love to see more on the big screen. So many great characters, great chemistry all around. Simple yet perfect storytelling. Wajib viewing.
