Granny loved it
John from Donegal, 24 Aug 2007
Ok, Ok, I admit it, I rented this for the sex scenes. I half expected it to be cheap and tacky despite Winterbotoom as director. But I'm glad to say I enjoyed it. The music was excellent, 'doomed' relationship believable, and the sex...
Kieran O'Brien was a very believable character, though I found his job as a glaciologist a stretch too far. Margo Silley was less believable, and I found her fragility at times a little disturbing. All in all very good. And don't worry, granny never saw it.
Not worth the effort.

You kind of hope that she gets an STI and he goes snow-blind. Pretty crap for such a controversial movie. As other reviewers have said, completely pointless, the sex is gratuitous and not at all appealing and there's no plot to speak of. The indie clips are the high point of the movie, but if you have to rely on music clips you haven't got much of a movie, in my opinion. Do yourself a favour and spend an hour watching paint dry. It's infinitely more entertaining. I want my hour back.
Not a porn, not a film

If you're looking for porn that you can rent through Screenclick, this is not it. If you're looking for a film that you might enjoy, this is probably not it either. So poor that I watched it during 3 ad breaks during and after Questions and Answers. The Fast Forward button never got so much use, brief pauses to see Margo Stilley try and match Paris Hilton at her one real talent (!) aside. She's probably not quite up to Hilton's level, but does use your feet pretty well.

..its a sad day when I can say this film was better for the concert segments than the sex scenes.
If you are renting this, most likely its because of its controversy over the sex scenes. Well, I have been watching films that use real hardcore sex for many years (Realm of the Senses is one of my favorites), but this one is a snooze fest. The acting is sub par, the dialogue laughable.
Just get your hands on a porno instead...
Use of FF button optional!

As other reviewers have remarked this is essentially a porn movie interspersed with live band videos with very little in the way of plot or storyline. Depending on its appeal one may choose to make liberal use of the Fast Forward button to zoom between increasingly explicit sex scenes or alternatively you might just enjoy the music interupped by irritating videos of real copulation
