It's also a definite R+. If you are scared off by horror, gore, or violence, much less sex and more sex, don't buy it. However, for the adults in the audience, it's awesome. I highly recommend it to those who want to watch a good movie and are not scared off by archaic moral or ethics systems.
Is it our parents' fault? Our mother's? Is that saying "the apple never falls far from the tree" really true? Are we doomed? Are we prisoners of our past? Are we prisoners of our role model's past? How much damage can and/or should a mother inflict on her sons?
How far will we go in order to just survive? Do we owe anything at all to anyone adversely affected by that struggle for survival? If we use others in trying to save ourselves, comfort ourselves, do we owe them anything?
Some of the scenes from the NAZI concentration camp were too graphic for me to watch. Some of the S&M scenes were difficult to watch much less understand.
Most memorable for me was watching Josh Lucas' character's facial and body reactions to Adam Brody's character when Adam teaches Josh to dance. Amazing.
The story follows a concentration camp survivor, later played by Bisset, who with her two sons (played very well by Brody and Lucas) fill a life of guilt, morose relationships and shallow emotions. As the story progresses we are intermittently subjected to harsh visuals from the war years to modern day abusive lovemaking. A difficult watch through and through, but it should not detract from the believability of the performances. The BD clarity is non-existent in all scenes, with prevalent grain and focus issues from the hand-helds at various times. The sound was selectable between standard 5.1 and DTS, which is used with most clarity in that final scene. The supplements are thorough and include:
* 5 interviews totaling 11:39 minutes, all lodef. Main cast and crew discuss their reasons for being in/making the film. Has a play all option.
* 5 featurettes totaling 26:18 minutes, intermittent HD clarity in some of the interviews and behind the scenes shots, most lodef. Play all option. The longest featurette contains interviews from all of the parties akin to the lengthy lovemaking requirements. Probably the rawest input you will hear from this many actors about doing these kinds of scenes.Read more ›

Not enough exploration of the mom's WWII sort-of collaboration, but overall worth watching. Jacqueline Bissett is excellent.Published 15 months ago by Steve in Manhattan
Our Jewish Mom (Jacqueline Bisset) did what she had to do to survive the concentration camp. She has raised 2 sons in NYC. Josh Lucas works as a fake agent for acting and models. Read morePublished 19 months ago by The Movie Guy
