    My life at Madrid
    When I was younger I lived like the film. I had a girlfriend, she used a lot of drugs, she put me thru them, thru the people and places that we lived in Madrid wen we were studying. That's why Gaspar touches my heart with that movie.

    Gaspar Noe shows you the life without e lies, he shows you the reality, the reality of sex, of drugs, of cumming, of living a life that you don't want or don't deserve.

    To my opinion he is one of the greatest artist in the cinema. Constructing worlrds that bring you to another state of mind. You watch a film of him and when it finished, you feel like been drugged without drug. He has the hability to enter inside your mind, transform it and then play with it. Like a substance would do..

    I see my self in most of the scenes of these movie and feel the anger of why people don't understand his cinema. He makes you feel the pain like you would be in the film, not only physical, but also psycological. Very few people like Lynch or Bela Tarr makes you feel that.

    Noé is an underrated filmaker. This movie is just a piece of art like all of his. And you know when you go to cinema to see one of his films that, you will be travelling inside the movie, because he dominates the audiovisual language with a great talent.

    Gaspar Noe creates art, he creates something new everytime. He is a tremendous artist. 8 stars out of 10.

    Terrific movie
    Yes, this movie is full of explicit sex, but it should be as it depicts what (a kind of) real love looks like. Episodes of great romance, attraction, lust, passion, to those of great regret, mistakes, sorrow, blaming, rage and anger. Life itself is like that for most of us. If you were once in love, if you suffered, if you were hurt or hurt anyone, unintentionally or not, you will understand this much more and connect to it. The plot is in the development of emotions between Electra und Murphy, and within each of them for the other, themselves and the world after they live through everything that is depicted. You have to have lived and have to have an open mind to look past sex as a taboo and only "pornographic" detail, and see it as part of life and love. I like how it was shown here, it is raw and in your face, but beautiful, not off-putting like in actual porn. The movie is intense with a lot of "color", it made me feel both in love again and heartbroken, thinking about my own relationship.
