That has to be the most uncomfortable beach to walk and lie down on...
One of the quietest thrillers I've ever seen. It's a very slow burn, but there's unsimulated sex on camera, definitely some murder, and a complicated protagonist who just can't stop hooking up with a murderer. If you like thrillers and gay stuff, check it out!
Well made, but pacing felt too slow.
Many unnecessary scenes. The movie was missing something. The $$$ shots took me by surprise. The movie was ok. Was the movie entertaining? YES
Where's the horror?? Great for French Realism, but awful for horror or suspense.
