* DyeingFOrYourArt: Tom Long learned to dance for the role, and it's probably the least successful part of his performance. While he dances more than adequately, he still shows signs of a man who is not entirely familiar with his body; there's no way Daniel would have been the raging success he and Bridget are said to be.
* BondageIsBad: A literal example.
* BreakTheCutie
* FilmOfTheBook
* KarmaHoudini: The abductors.

* ActingForTwo: Anna Torv plays both Bridget and one of the abductors, though this isn't necessarily meant to mean that Bridget was one of the abductors. Ana Kokkinos just thought she was the best actress for the role.
** That said, Kokkinos hasn't given an explicit WordOfGod stating that it's NOT to be seen that way. The film has some interesting dynamics if you see Bridget as one of the abductors, especially given the hints at their relationship deteriorating.


* ADateWithRosiePalms: A disturbing one at that, but brings about Daniels defiant CrowningMomentOfAwesome. In the same scene, one of the female captors goes on a date too.

* RapeIsOkWhenItIsFemaleOnMale: Averted ''hard''. It's shown as every bit as traumatising to Daniel as it is generally shown to female characters in other works. It's even somewhat lampshaded as such when Daniel tries to report the crime under the IHaveThisFriend guise, only to be told by the police that the friend must have been a lucky bastard. When Daniel joins in their laughter it's heartbreaking.


* HollywoodSex: Averted. Oh, so averted.


The film is ''very'' esoteric, and is not one to take lightly. Reviews were mainly positive, praising the performances of all involved (especially Tom Long in a challenging role) but the film is often criticised for being slow, with languid pacing and too much silence trying to pass as meaning. But, as always, [[YourMileageMayVary mileages vary]]

* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Given that she's present for the first half of the film, Bridget's disappearance from the story seems a bit odd.

* EverybodyRemembersTheStripper: Justified. The film is a gentle look at the brutality of rape, how it destroys a man's life, and how it affects the people connected with him. But you'll only hear people talking about the rape scenes. That's because they stand out so harshly against the otherwise softly-spoken film.
