My BIG problem with the film is that the makers promoted it as a "true" look into a caring, power exchange alternate lifestyle. The maker's website description is misleading as is the film's trailer. They tell you the main characters are intruded upon by international slavers. In fact, the main characters (except for Mary/GG) are all business partners and friends in a kidnapping/murdering syndicate that deals in selling body parts and slave laborers. Philip's wish that Mary/GG not be sold as such is purely his personal wish. So, once again a chance to make a film showing the beauty of a loving dominant/submissive relationship is turned into just another demonization of the BDSM community. By this depiction, you are either crazy, evil or just plain stupid to participate in such a lifestyle. Yet, the makers promote this film as being about a loving consensual relationship. Its really just an exploitation film and
when you break down the ridiculous plot, there really is not much left to
like. One example of this plot is after a couple weeks of training, having your Pet be devoid of nearly all cognitive function(they do say that clearly). So, we have people talking about murdering their Pets and selling the organs right in front of them with no reaction. Oh, come on!Read more ›
Probably worse than the money I wasted on this is the black-eye it gives to BDSM. There is not a character in the film who could not be considered quite insane. This is not even a love story. It's a strange story about bizarre people, all of whom manage to be inept human beings with no moral bearing. All that and it manages to be boring too.
Great locations, quality cinematography and the snow scene was enjoyable, but I wouldn't say that this represents many realities. The conflict scenes were not choreographed well, nor confrontational tension handled very well at all. Video effects and tension music had to be employed to convey any impact and this gave the project a very rushed feel. Also, people who are branded usually scream an awful lot more, straight from the heart, and usually pass out with the level of pain; that branch in her mouth would have been bitten in two - one example of taking a powerful situation to emphasise the impact of the circumstances and then only pawing at it half heartedly.
The overall timing and pace of the sequences just felt completely wrong. Sections where I was looking to invest my emotions were rushed or glossed over, and others which didn't have that much impact beyond sexual tittilation felt dragged out. In short, they had a wonderful opportunity but I felt they squandered it and I felt cheated as a result.

Not sure what I was expecting but this wasn't it. Seems to be more of a human study in futility more than anything else. The cover picture has nothing to do with the movie.Published 12 days ago by OgZapper
