Young People F***ing

ypf posterThis Canadian film was, obviously, the stand out film at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, in which it sold out in record time. As such, despite its profane title, I decided that I had to see the film to see what all the fuss was about.

The film is a sex comedy with a very simple execution: It takes five couples from different categories (friends, couple, exes, first date, and roommates) and follows them in the process of a sexual encounter in six chapters from the prelude to afterglow.

This film probably features a more honest portrayal of sexuality than what is shown in Hollywood films, especially when the characters enter very awkward situations (some of which were quite funny).

In the end, I can saying that film was a very interesting, and often hilarious, exploration of sexuality among 20-somethings. However, I do have to say that I was a bit disappointed when the line that was advertised as the “Funniest Single Line” of the year only made me result in a slight giggle.
