Don’t believe the hype. Yes there is nudity, so there’s that. Unlike many people I know online giving glowing reviews I…

do not think it’s the best film of 2019
think the camera angles and long shots are the best features
I don’t get the lesbian love story that of course had girl on girl sex scenes. (Whodathunkit?) Perhaps I am being rustic but it could have been told better, more subtly. Just me.

Once again fell for the hype around a French movie w subtitles.

You can safely miss this one.
