Valentine’s Week of Sex: Namukku Parkkan Munthirithoppukal

This is a movie that is all about sex, without actually having a sex scene. Sex fantasies, sex experimentation, and sexual violence (nothing explicitly shown, but discussed and treated seriously by the plot). And it is also a movie about love and redemption and freedom. It’s just lovely.
