It's not often we praise a web series...but, praise this we do!
It all just clicks...fantastic production values, a soundtrack to die for...and, some damn fine writing...matched with some damn fine performances.
This has the potential of being a very special feature film…by adding a few more minutes [at least 15 or so], developing Simon’s story…is he gay, bisexual, asexual or [just] indifferent to sex but not to love? Utterly fascinating. And…that ending…brilliant.
Seriously...it's too good to be [just] a web series...but, this may be a clear indication that web-series-makers have finally upped their game! Hallelujah!
One kiss on the roof on a warm night in Copenhagen and Cathrine, in her early twenties, can no longer keep a grip on her life. On the one hand, there’s her colleague Selma, from whom she wants more after that first kiss. On the other, there’s her boyfriend Simon. For him, what little they have is actually plenty, and for some time now, even less has been enough for Simon in bed. For Cathrine, who works at a call centre giving tips on sex and love, it’s definitely not enough, and after Selma’s kiss she doesn’t know what to do. She’s hungry, helpless and lonely. Torn between regret and desire, she drags everyone who loves her and who she loves into her chaos.
In episodes that are each barely quarter of an hour long, Danish director Amalie Næsby Fick and creator/writer Clara Mendes use intense images and an imposing score to unfold a contemporary love story that is as old as the hills. What if I don’t want what I want but can’t help myself? This six-part short-form series is being broadcast in Denmark during the sixth week of the year, a period traditionally dedicated to the topic of sex education.
