Calm, distant. Very calm and distant
Unlike the novel it is based on. The feeling you get when you watched all the attempts made to put a brilliant book on screen and are left wondering if anyone who did so even read it. Leopold Von Sacher-Masoch wrote a story about unrequited love, passion, the fear of loss and sexual prejudice in society, none of which are expressed in this movie, instead of questioning the sociological structures of relationships it is yet another display of naked bodies and a lack of plot and conversation. One could argue that the writers of the film intended to express the heavy dialog thats contained in the book visually; Although to me that would raise the question why someone would attempt to do so by just showing nudity; how should nudity express copious dialogs about love, social criticism etc. Succinct and direct: Poorly executed.
