Solid love story
I didn't think I was going to like this one. I was wrong. Find yourself a woman who looks at you the way Core looks at her lovers.
A great film... if you like Claire Denis and her flavor of exploratory sex & violence. I love Denis (esp. High Life), and this was no exception. Some clunky dialogue common for French and Italian films made in English. What's most impressive is the intensity toggling between extreme and sedate. It's a slow burn filled with violence that is brutal, sordid, but obviously a turn-on for some of our characters. My take-away is the question of how do we live with our lovers/romantic partners when something carnal and animal beckons inside us all.
I tired to like it, but I couldn't. There was very little plot here.
