A scene of a naked woman and man having sex opens the film. She, however, looks like a wax doll. Intimisto explores in detail the effects of having sex without any feeling. Her gestures, eyes and motion desperately appeal for something passionate, but a solid wall obstructs her. She happens to meet a stranger’s gaze, but neither of them avoid each other’s eyes. Could the encounter with him resolve her inner turmoil which refuses to be quelled? Brief dialogues and her refined acting create a subtle tension and appeal. (Jenna Ku)
