3.0 out of 5 stars Better on second viewing, 9 April 2013
Firstly, this DVD has a 15 certificate. There is no porn in it. It's a shame the title suggests otherwise because it is perhaps a film that should be shown in American high schools, though that in unlikely to say the very least: I could certainly see the film being shown to fifteen year olds in France.
The plot is simple enough. What makes the movie sre the performances of the two female leads, and the interviews which I must surmise are genuine. The film is a plea for empathy and tolerance, and it works.

Hard to believe this was a TV drama; one would never guess from the production and performances which are exceptional. There are two scenes which are superflous (mentioned by others)but apart from that there is nothing to dislike about the movie. Very pleased I bought it.

Brilliant show-don't-tell example of film making of the highest order. Its simplicity is its brilliance. It's all there; you only need to look, think. Films like this only come along every ten years or so.
