This is a neat little movie dealing with some relatively banal perversions of the main female protagonist. The story is pretty linear, with rather timid diversions and lack of any subplots, perhaps too measured, this together with sparse locales and modest cast number. On the other hand, the direction is competent, acting is fairly solid, and even when naive, it does not cause distraction. The dialogue is witty and sparkly at times. Altogether, a very pleasant experience. Would be interesting to see how wold this project fare with more funding.
For those concerned, nudity is minimal and in function of the story, violence non-existent and language appropriate to situation (and, somehow, for this movie, that might not be a good thing). 5/10, plus one star for encouragement.
