It’s every dirty-old-man’s fantasy about an old man successfully seducing scores of young, beautiful women. There is a scene where a young woman who is nude from the waist up walks around the room giving you plenty of time to check her out. It adds nothing to the story and is just an excuse to stare at her breasts. There are no consequences for his lascivious behavior and in the end he marries a beautiful kid whom he will ogle and abuse.

A society is as a man does.

I'm deeply saddened as a man to see yet another movie where the man who scars and leaves multiple kind women who never utter a word against him, get a winners ending where else the woman who tried to teach him a lesson is shown as lonely and sad regardless of what her final dialogues say about her being at peace. If you're a fan of patriarchy this movie is for you but if you have even an ounce of humanity, you'll be disturbed by the ending.
