Softness of Bodies had me feeling as though I was stuck in a hipster universe and couldn’t escape. It just wasn’t for me. At times it was too slow and I had trouble staying focused. On top of that, everything Charlotte (Dasha Nekrasova) did in the film just infuriated me. Which speaks to her acting. It was excellent. She portrayed the character perfectly. I just couldn’t stand to watch her train wreck of a life unfold.

My three favorite things from Softness of Bodies:

  1. Dasha Nekrasova
  2. The cinematography
  3. The final twenty minutes

If it weren’t for those three, I would have wasted 74 minutes of my life. That being said, I had a feeling going into it, that it wasn’t my type of movie. I was hoping to be pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, I wasn’t and I’m still trying to figure out how it was a comedy…

Make sure you check the trailer first. There’s definitely a select group that would thoroughly enjoy Softness of Bodies. I’m just not part of that group.

Softness of Bodies is currently streaming for free on Amazon.
