Too Warm

Too hot for me to go out today or tomorrow, so I rearranged my errands for next week. I'm washing sheets and putting clean ones on, as usual. We had a couple come look at a condo in the building next to us; I guess people are getting close to agreements on selling and buying, and I expect parking complaints soon.

Head-On

This German movie has a couple meet in a psych unit after they've both tried to kill themselves. The much-younger woman, Sibel, asks Cahit to marry her so she can get away from her parents and their Turkish rules. Cahit is also Turkish, but since he's a guy, his rules are not so firm. (I seem to be getting a lot of this kind of thing lately.)

She talks him into getting married, telling him that they don't have to actually act married -- she wants to be able to fuck lots of men. And indeed, both of them have lots of sex, in many positions and showing all genitals. They turn out to love each other, but not at the same time, and violence erupts at the null times. The ending makes sense, but is not what you might expect. This is rated R, which really surprised me.
