The Lover (L'amant) Reviews

  • Sep 17, 2019

    This movie introduced me to my first crush, Tony Leung Ka-fai. I feel the film showed two people victims of their own culture's demands and traditions finding comfort in each other. It wasn't a sex-fest. They each craved for some sort of physical affection that was denied by their families and they found it in each other. I feel The Lover portrays that beautifully. I wish more films would show sensuality as a connection rather than a way to get the audience off. This film deserves a bravo.

    Contrary to the majority of the critics, i really enjoyed this film. At a slow pace, and initially erotically charged, the film slowly unwinds it's emotional core with the help of Gabriel Yared's score, and turns into quite a touching film.

    Tony really brought chinaman to life. That tall and sexy guy, hesitated and struggled. He has the willing but no gut to love.

    It's a haunting love story. The subtlety and the chemistry delivered by the characters are great. Not suitable for people who seek for happy ending or cheesy romance.
