S. is an exceptionally confusing movie, in which there is as much sex and violence as you can get in an hour and a half. This is probably the major flaw of the movie: it goes nowhere, whereas the only aim seems to be putting off as many viewers as possible. The sex is mostly gratuitous and offers as much variety as you can get in an ordinary porn flick.(although mostly lesbian sex) The dialogue is stupid to say the least. The task of the actors was probably to use as many foul words as possible ,in which they succeeded wonderfully. The (younger)actors need to work on their pronunciation as well. Without any subtitles I really couldn't understand what the actors(especially Natali Broods)where mumbling.(while I speak Dutch myself) You also get to see some scenes truly never seen before: a (hot) scene with a priest, a sex scene(there aren't almost any other scenes!)in someone's ashes(!),etc. What did they try to accomplish? A new CLOCKWORK ORANGE? And why was the story built up in such a disorganized way. It didn't make any sense at all.

And in the end, the film didn't even accomplish what was apparently its only goal, that is: to upset the viewer. Well ... actually it did: I was upset watching 90 min. of bad film-making! 4/10
