In Brief: Lazy Hazy Crazy (2015) NYAFF 2016

Sexually frank story of three girls who move in together. One is selling her services via an app and the others join in.  The film follows their ebb and flow of the women who through it all remain friends.

Nicely done low key film is not going to be for all audiences. The slice of life nature of the film and sexually frank discussions are not going to work for everyone.  I myself liked the film but at the same time felt myself distanced from the characters through age and sex, I am decidedly not an 18 year old woman.

All of that said, this is a lovely little film with some very real performances from the three leads. The cinematography nicely puts us into Hong Kong in a way that few films ever do. I also am a fan of the gentle score which nicely highlights the the action on screen.

If you have any interest in seeing this film I definitely recommend it when it plays Saturday at NYAFF.
