Truthfully I'm not sure why so many appear to love this film. Pretentious, irritating, talky and more devoid of imagination AND sensuality than any foreign movie I've seen in quite a while. Not worth your time, unless dinner conversation about Plato and social hierarchy (enough with the snobbery!) are your cup of tea. I'm baffled that homosexuality is even included in this crowded, overburdened film.
I'll admit, I did not stick around to watch the entire plot unfold (obviously). In all honesty, I decided going to bed was more worth my time than staying up to see if this storyline went anywhere more interesting.
filled in with a lot of lackluster script, dialogue, and a movie that goes from good and interesting to a complete mess. True, the visuals were excellent, being extremely erotic without turning into sex scenes. However, at least for me, the turning point for the movie was the whole "let's make a bet...," specially because the purpose of the bet did not make sense and the two supposedly intelligent characters knew there could be no winners.
I don't recommend this one unless you have nothing better to do.
