a foursome in some beautiful remote countryside place?
haven't i seen this before?
well, browsed through all the 10 reviews so far, hoping someone has mentioned what i'm going to say but didn't find it ... except for one making a hint to The Dreamers by Bertolucci ... which is not exactly this really as there are only three people in that, two of whom a brother and a sister ... and like most Bertolucci movies, it's strongly politically inclined ... so, that's not one of the two movies with a similar theme i had in mind ...
Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice (1969) is one of them though, which has a four-stars cast, all beautiful and handsome and super famous ... and the other's a movie i really wish to watch again but haven't been able to find because i don't remember its name, nor that of any of its actors (and it was either a late 1960s or early 1970s movie btw ...) i do remember that unlike this one that's rather an artsy movie, it was more a commercial product (with a strong moralistic message in the end) although still good and worth seeing ... and if i recall it right, it had a four-stars cast too ...
anyhoot, why did i get into all the detail about the other two similar movies here? simply because i wanted to point out that from the VP of story, Amorous (Hide and Seek) is not a 'new' movie really ... but the way it is made (trying to be "artsy" as some have put it already, while also being low cost and indie) then this work is certainly very much different from the other two 'big production' cases just mentioned above ...
and i have to say i did like this work but i do also find it a little lacking in some ways ... as well as a little confused ... for example, this could well be a nice little soft porn movie, but it's not ... or it could delve more into the innards of the characters, but it doesn't quite do that either ... so, it's kind of lost between the two worlds maybe ... and maybe that's what the director had in mind too? maybe ... maybe there's also a soft porn cut of this work in the director's personal archives just as well, you know, with its sex scenes in full ... maybe ...
In an English cottage, four young people from London move in together, seeking to challenge social conventions and their own tolerances by engaging in scheduled partner-swapping. The durability of their new living arrangements is tested by the arrival of an outsider who fails to get in tune with the foursome's radical spirit.
