Paola Calvos' documentary shows the world of BDSM in a whole new way: The director accompanies choreographer Felix Ruckert and cultural worker Mara Morgen, who dive into the labyrinth of desire with other participants.
She gives her protagonists free rein and steps back. Despite the explicitness of the recordings, the mood of the film is calm, almost esoteric and meditative. Nevertheless, his directness could disturb overly sensitive viewers.
