Disgusted (Spoilers)


I work in a cinema and i just saw this film tonight. The description i read didnt not mention anything about a 70 odd your old falling for what looks like a 17 year old and griping her.
2 People walked out and i don't blame them.
This film was well written but the theme of it was not to my taste, and before you ask, I am a 17 year old guy not some old person complaining (no offence intended)
Well thats my view on it. Just a horrible thing to see

Not enough CGI effects for you?

You are an idiot.

Do you get disgusted and walk out of a film when someone is murdered in a movie?

It's not real. Of course it was a horrible thing to see. In my opinion, that was the point.

It's French...bitch.

reply

You're pretty stuck up for a 17 year old.

There are a few perverse things in this film, it is true. Some of the language and content is not for everyone.

reply

No disrespect intended, but many people go through a super-moral phase in their late teens. You will probably loosen up a little in a few years.

reply

Please explain to me what was perverse about this movie? I bet you wouldn't find it perverse if you saw Orlando Bloom sticking his hand up some girl's skirt. And that was pretty much the worst scene in the whole movie.

Do you assume that older people have no sex drive? So therefore we all have to sit and listen to your prudish, rather prejudice sanctimonious preachings? And before you ask, I am 20 years old and my age has nothing to do with my ideas over this issue.

So what do you think about Hugh Hefner running around the playboy mansion with three younger girls... bet you think he's the man! At least Maurice loved Jessie, it was not all about sex. The man knew he was ill and probably dying. He had been famous and a womaniser, how could his beaviour come as such a shock to you? If you think this was disgusting, then really...

Haha prunesanrequeen
Can't wait until you're 93 with no teeth and a colostomy bag and every young woman looks amazing to you. Your libido will be just as strong as ever but there'll be no outlet for it. You'll be reduced to longingly staring at the female cast of Hollyoaks while you tuck into your dinner of corned beef and tinned veg. And prunes for desert?
You'll always have Werther's Original to console you.

Old age comes to us all..........

muzzaofoz. there are drugs that can reduce your libido, there's psychotherapy to help resist the womanising aspect of his personality. in short theres help if he wants it, but he chooses to give into his fantasies and desires.
maurice took advantage of her knowing she had nowhere to go and no means to get there. if all things were equal she(jessie) wouldn't have tolerated maurices advances, but as it was circumstance coerced her into an unwanted alliance.
if you can justify grooming then incest and rape will soon follow.

reply

whats disgusting is how she treats him. im 20 and im already frightened about becoming older and unwanted.

reply

Well doesn't it just show that some people have better understandings of films than others?

I am a 19 year old female and I was in no way offended or felt uncomfortable whilst watching this beautiful, poignant and moving film.

*I'm your stranger ... Jump!*

reply

im 19/female too and I enjoyed this film, if anything it was venus who was unlikeable, she used him and yes she did finally get a bit of a coinscience but I still felt quite a strong dislike for her character. I felt so sorry for maurice he was lonely and in love with someone that was never going to truly love him back, wich happens in peoples lives from all age groups.
Also whoever mentioned the playboy mantion I totally agree, now Hugh is a dirty old man! XD

reply

Hefner a dirty old man? No. I disagree. He just happens to do whatever he wants, or at least 99% of the male population wants to do. God bless him. He loves women and loves showing them off. He never was violent against women and it seems he even disfranchised one of his sons after he beat his gf, a playmate of the year. He has my full sympathy.

reply

That's less of a concern for old people who aren't lecherous pervs.
