A good movie

First of all, who are we kidding? The main reason either of us would watch this flick is above all because of its infamous reputation surrounded by controversy. Since I have always been interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house... read more

"24.10. Aistien valtakunta oli vähän liian in your face makuuni, koska pelkkä pornolla shokeeraaminen ei ihan enää onnistu nykypäivänä ja minun oli liian vaikea sijoittaa katselukokemukseni 1970-luvulle, vaikka elokuvia on mahdollista katsoa myös aikakautensa tuotteena. Pornoilua on myös niin paljon, että koin katsovani vain tylsää nylkytystä, jolloin en edes yrittänyt päästä sisälle hahmoihin. Naurahdin DVD:n takakannessa olevia hehkutuksia elokuvan runollisesta kuvakerronna"

"22.9. (Kirjasto-DVD) Tositapahtumiin perustuvassa elokuvassa käsitellään intohimoa sekä toisen ihmisen kaipuuta sangen taktisesti - itse ainakin masennuin sen myötä pahemmin, kuin Cannibal Holocaustin, Serbian Filmin tai Irreversiblen myötä konsanaan. Kuka tahansa pystyy kylvämään ympärilleen pahaa, mutta harva kykenee saamaan toisessa ihmisessä aikaan tunteita, että tämä tekee kaikkensa voidakseen olla kanssasi ikuisesti.

" Aug.20thAn intensely sexual, erotic, fucked-up experience. Beautiful cinematography. It's not hard to see why this was banned. It would have been controversial in any country. Way ahead of its time in what it explores.  "

A good movie

“First of all, who are we kidding? The main reason either of us would watch this flick is above all because of its infamous reputation surrounded by controversy. Since I have always been interested in experimental movies, especially the ones pushing the envelop, I definitely wanted to check it out and I thought it was pretty good but it is definitely an acquired taste. Basically, it is an Art house picture with some non-simulated sex-scenes and, apparently, the very first non-pornographic film to feature scenes of fellatio and even an erect penis. Knowing this fact, most people would drop the whole thing and I don’t think it is something you should watch with your fresh new girlfriend but I think that the concept was actually interesting. Indeed, why should a sex movie be ugly as hell, wi” read more

"A very explicit piece of work about a sordid love affair that becomes increasingly possessive over time. What held my interest the most was how the entire relationship presented itself in such graphic detail, as if Last Tango in Paris was a very dark psychological sex drama. Nonetheless, I probably wouldn't willingly watch it again. "

" Nagisa Oshima's graphic examination of all-consuming sexual obsession was seized by US Customs and cut before being released."

"10.2. Hämmentävintä elokuvaa pitkään aikaan, enkä todellakaan osaa päättää pidinkö tästä hämmennyksestä vai enkö. Selvästi on pornoa pyritty kääntämään taiteeksi päähenkilöiden alati kasvavan intohimon kuvaamisella, ja lopputulos tuntuu lievästi sanottuna käsittämättömältä yhdistelmältä elokuvataidetta ja kyrpää. Teos saisi sanomansa huomattavasti paremmin perille, jos se luottaisi enemmän katsojan omaan mielikuvitukseen aivan kaiken näyttämisen sijaan. T"
