Possibly the coolest film of all time. A ridiculous mix of sex, religion, cults and panty shots by one of the most over looked directors of the decade spread over 4 hours. It shouldn't work but it leaves you out of breath and hoping that every film you see for the rest of your life can be half as much fun. It's funny, twisted and at times completely absurd but also has a big heart running right th... read more

Description: The story follows Yu Honda, a young teenage Catholic attempting to live his life in a faithful and orderly manner. His father, Tetsu, has become a devout Catholic priest following the death of Yu's mother, and operates his own church. Yu's father asks Yu to confess his sins, but Yu believes he is a good person, who has little to confess. At first he makes up sins, but his father sees right through him, and Yu sets out to commit real sins. Because of this, he falls in with a questionable crowd.

"another incredible Sion Sono's film. I know - it's 4 hours long, but trust me, it's really, really entertaining. "

"27.11 DVD Rewatch Olen aika harmissani siitä että vaikka en pitänyt tämän alkupuolta lähes ollenkaan ärsyttävänä, kuten viime katsomisella (se oli tuon päähenkilön vika ja huumori tuntui vähän vammaiselta, jotain sellaista), mutta vastapuoleksi loppupuolella en voinut saada ihan kaikkea irti, koska tiesin lopputuloksen. Siltin ei voi kieltää sitä etteikö kyseessä olisi hyvin eeppinen elokuva jossa on kirjaimellisesti kaikkea, ja yksi lisätodiste siitä että Sion Sono on yk"

"17.11. Voisin sanoa, että tästä nyt on kaikki olennainen jo kerrottu ja on se vuosikymmenen huikeimpia mestariteoksia, mikä itsessään on kieltämättä totta. Silti haluan ilmaista täydellisen äimistynykseni sille, miten erilaisella tavalla Love Exposure yltää kohdallani täysiin pisteisiin mihinkään muuhun elokuvataiteen suurteokseen nähden. Periaatteessa kaikki ns. kauniin elokuvanteon säännöt lyödään ensiminuuteista asti täysin läskiksi, ja kokonaisuus lähentelee jotain"

"14.10.2012, DVD Tämä elokuva on kyllä niin oma juttunsa etten oikeastaan voi sanoa tästä yhtään mitään. Ehdottomasti 2000-luvun siisteimpiä elokuvia mistä ei kyllä keksi yhtään pahaa sanottavaa. Leffa osaa olla niin hyvin vakava, hauska, pelottava ja monta muuta asiaa että huhhuh. Elämäni nopeimmat neljä tuntia ehdottomasti."

"13.10. Ei mitään erikoisempaa sanottavaa mitä ei olisi jo muut tästä kommentoineet. Kaikinpuolin siis erinomainen pläjäys, jonka parissa tuo neljätuntia ja rapiat pääsi vierähtämään lähes huomaamatta. "
