The movie is worth seeing. You won't be bored. It is fast-paced sexual tease all the way through.
What I got instead of that was a thoughtful, down-to-earth look at the modern relationship, and the passion, joy, and most of all confusion that goes into it. In fact, it addresses human relationships, love, and sex so intelligently and honestly that I can't believe it got released.
Naturally, there's still a whole bunch of sex in Fling, but it manages not to be a sexploitation flick, in the same way that it's funny, but not a romantic comedy. It's just a film about people being people, having people problems and dealing with them in less-than-heroic ways. For a while I forgot I was watching a movie. Part of that was because the actors gave a surprisingly convincing performance, but the cinematography played a major role as well. Going with the hand-held style lent a great deal of intimacy and gravity to the events and characters depicted in the movie, and made me feel as if I was a close friend standing in the room, watching things fall apart between my best buds. It also worked to separate the film even further from the big-budget Hollywood flicks that it will inevitably be lumped in with.
Fling was a very new experience for me, a unique film that confronted an important aspect in our culture that virtually no one else in film has addressed with any degree of grace or understanding. A true labor of love. I highly recommend that you scoop up your significant other(s), sit down with them and give this film a watch, and recommend even more that you talk about it afterward.
"Fling" attempts to dissect and explore the emotional possibilities of "Free Love." In keeping with conventional wisdom, Hollywood let's the explorer lose in the end. Not because the idea is preposterous, but because "Free Love" would disrupt life as we know it.
I highly recommend "Fling" to the intellectually enlightened.
The "open" couple Mason and Sam are introduced in a Kansas City loft-style apartment, getting ready to leave for a wedding where they both find another love interest. Mason actually encourages James to hit on his girlfriend, Sam, as he talks to his best friend's (and agent's) 18 year-old sister, Olivia, who grew up with a crush on him. Mason and Sam stay together at the end of the night in hotel room and through out the movie. However with a strange love for each other, but no commitment, they spend the rest of the movie seeking out "open" interests.
I also thought the photography was beautiful and was surprised that the sexual situations between characters were done with a sense of intimacy without a lot of actual nudity! Very sexy.
