This is always the first movie that comes to my mind when someone asks me for a recommendation. A bit misunderstood, lot of people think it is a movie for perverts.
A different movie indeed. With an unique sense of humor, and great eroticism too.
You will like it or not depending if you feel related to the characters. I did. I felt how they feel. Both Maggie Gyllenhaal and James Spader give probably their best perfonmances.
To me is an extraordinary love story, but mainly it is about the importance of the love to oneself. And the possibility of finding happiness that comes from self-acceptance.
I will keep recommending it.
