I would love to watch this film since it released, but at the time I was too scared of watching the film alone.
(The House of the Sleeping Beauties by Yasunari Kawabata, Memories of My Melancholy Whores by Gabriel Garcia Marquez)
The story focused on a young woman who worked as a “Sleeping Beauty”, a woman who slept on the bed while men in all age touches and well possibly exploit them in their sleep. The idea in a way was disturbing, as such work could be very easily conflated into un-consented sex or even rape. I also dislike the idea of being asleep while all these little things happened, as it increased the sense of vulnerability and therefore it would be much harder for one to protect ourselves.
There were also a lot of emphasis upon men (mostly in older age within the trailer) stroking the bodies of the young woman, which like the two books in the photos – they shared a mutual sense of nostalgia on youth, the closing point of death. Through the descriptions, the punters in both the two novels and the film had been having their memory lane moments over the women they have been with.
Need to see this film for sure, somehow, if I can find a time and mood.
Need to see this too!
