At Cannes the film shocked some critics with its long and graphic sex scenes, leading them to state that the film may require some editing before it is screened in cinemas. Initially planned to be shot in two-and-a-half months, the film took five. Hmmm. the 2 leads must've really liked the 'action' segs. Justin Chang writing for Variety said that the film contains "the most explosively graphic lesbian sex scenes in recent memory" I also like the 'explosive' nes.
