This is really not everyoneâ€™s cup of tea. It is a film that will not fit the love story genre easily. It has more to do with liberation and sexual thought. It is not a film about love but lust, sex and everything perverted associated with it. So it will work in a subgenre that is rarely seen on screen unless you account for some of the Harmony Korine films.
