Same as yesterday. The Lisinska ultra-HD clips would have made
too big a zip file to lump together, so I separated them
I didn't know anything about this film in advance and when I saw the
title I was filled with dread. I thought it was going to be another one of
those pretentious and oh-so-serious films where the director haughtily
flaunts his disdain for conventional mores, ala 9 Songs or Lie With Me.
After all, the title just cries out, "Look at me. I'm just so
self-consciously audacious that you can tell how superior I feel to you
Thank God I was wrong because I hate that kind of movie. The people who
make those films tend to take all the fun out of sex and can't seem to
distinguish between erotica and explicitness.
This Canadian film is actually a pleasant, down-to-earth and
conventional repertory comedy about modern relationships .... well ...
modern straight, white, polite, middle-class relationships, to be more
accurate. The title serves several purposes. First, it describes what the
film is about. Second, it is part of the film's humor. Third, it is
designed to attract attention and publicity to a small, non-marquee film
which might otherwise get lost in the shuffle.
The film basically demonstrates that the process of love-making follows
a certain path and moves in defined steps, irrespective of how well the
partners know one another. To make the point, it takes five couples (well,
one is a threesome, to be technical) at totally different stages in their
relationships and relates how one act of intercourse develops for each
couple. The film is divided into six chapters which represent the stages
of an evening's seduction, and the narrative cuts back and forth among the
stories. One of the couples is on a first date; one is comfortably
married; one consists of exes; one is a pair of long-time friends trying
to have their one and only lifetime sportfuck; the last is the threesome,
in which a man persuades his girlfriend and male roommate to have sex with
one another while he watches.
Young People Fucking works. I don't normally like ensemble relationship
comedies any better than the self-consciously arty pseudo-erotica I was
dreading, simply because there are so many pitfalls they can fall into.
This film avoids all the problems by negotiating the balance between zany
and warm; as well as that between contrived and realistic. The characters
are recognizable, complex and as credible as can be expected from a comedy
which has to deliver a certain quota of laughs. The script takes enough
time to develop each of the five mini-plays so that the emotional
resonance of the scenes can shine through the comic set-ups. You will not
like every single character, but even the coldest ones (the first date
couple) have vulnerabilities and insecurities which make them sympathetic
to some degree, and the eleven actors do quite a good job at making the
audience members feel as if they were eavesdropping on real situations.
Best of all, the film approaches the subject matter with honesty to match
its good humor, and you may even be moved in a couple of spots.
Plus there's plenty of topless nudity from some beautiful women with
their own factory-original breasts. (And a couple of firm male butts for
those inclined to enjoy that component of the action.)
This film is a very pleasant and sexy way to pass 80-some minutes.
