Touch Me Not (Blu-ray)
Directed by Adina Pintilie
Also Available On:FandangoNow Booking Inquiry
Filmmaker Adina Pintilie’s Golden Bear–winning first feature is a brave and raw look at bodies, intimacy, and empathy, exploring the private lives and sexual desires of four people with an approach that blurs the line between fiction and documentary.
Moving seamlessly between erotic clubs and closed-door reflections, Touch Me Not is a self-assured journey into the intimate lives of Laura, Tómas, Christian, and Grit. Opening windows into a world of those who dare to break with social conventions and access the hidden aspects of their sexuality, the film revels in a space where anyone — no matter the obstacle — has the possibility of touching their inner rebel.
In what feels like galaxies beyond the sexual revolution of the 1960s, Touch Me Not invites us to start as a tabula rasa and transcend all previously imagined limits. To call the film body positive and brave would be an understatement: it is a tour de force, a supernova of identity. Within protective spaces that are entirely free of judgment, Adina Pintilie and her protagonists explore new perspectives on human relationships, and we, as viewers, are challenged to question our own self-knowledge and continue our journey of self-discovery beyond the cinema in our everyday lives.
A shattering exploration of the fine line between fiction and reality, Pintilie’s feature debut is a studied, elaborate, and unsettlingly daring dialogue with the inner self. Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear and Best First Feature, Touch Me Not is, for those brave enough to engage with desire, an exhilarating plunge into the endless possibilities of the human body and mind. – Dimitri Eipides, Toronto International Film Festival
