Convoluted, kinky story set in London about a temperamental flamenco dancer (Natalia Verbeke) who, recovering from an abusive relationship, agrees to marry a gentlemanly Brit (James D'Arcy), but at her bachelorette party encounters a video-camera-wielding Brazilian actor (Gael Garcia Bernal in his first English-speaking role), setting the scene for a romantic triangle. Writer-director Matthew Parkhill's story of seamy love is not quite what it seems to be, as there are some neat Hitchcockian twists along the way, but the plot is improbable in the extreme, and the execution -- despite some clever touches -- feels semiamateurish. Much rough and crude language, sexual situations, partial rear nudity, suicide with associated gore, murder without retribution. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L -- limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.
