Oh yes. This little erotic thriller plays in the top league. To begin with, the cinematography is absolutely stunning. Then you get great performances and a successful mix of genres. Some scenes even reminded me of a quality Asian horror. This is an elegantly perverted and even a bit pretentious movie, but executed so well that it deserves to be so. The only downside is the ending, which is just average for such movies, but this movie is about the effect, not the substance.
