CGiii Comment

This first scene is unnecessary - a boy wanking furiously in front of his computer is not a great way to start a film.

Playing Danny Boy at the end - is possibly the most bizarre musical choice ever...it will amaze you - but, not in a good way.

So that leaves the middle - and, it's actually quite good.

Culturally, the whole communal washing thing is a little strange...but, it does look good - especially with the HD camera.

There are a few clumsy edits...but, there is a sensuality that is surprisingly erotic.

Pretty good on the whole...but. the bad beginning and end are problems.

But...the director is definitely improving. Still...too many 'buts'.
