It doesn't make sense

I honestly would've liked it if the plot twist wasn't like that. Like why would they have an observatory in a hidden attic. It doesn't fit in. And the guy had sex with several women to make it look like he's cheating, was that a part of their plan too? And his wife's okay with that? Also why would they even drink a wine that's mysteriously outside their door if they're so smart.

There’s better things to waste your time on

I just wasted an hour plus of my life watching this stupid movie. It’s more like a bad story telling soft porn flick than anything. Lots of nudity. Depiction of suicide might be a trigger for some. Storyline and plot ended up being severely disappointing and once it was over I regretted ever trying to give it a shot.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (4 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

There's a lot to like about where this thriller eventually ends up, but it simply takes too long to get to its last act. Indeed, by the time that final act of The Voyeurs even begins, many viewers might find themselves already done, done with the characters, the story, and with caring about what happens.

The film spends way too much time during its first three quarters lingering on sex, women's bodies, bare breasts, and bare buttocks. This problem means that in order to get to its last (and most thrilling) act, many viewers might already be in too much disbelief to stomach what's necessary to get there. In other words, right before this final part, the film forces you to watch the main character finally achieve what she longed for, but at this point, most viewers won't care and won't want to see it either. This is too bad because the last part of The Voyeurs is actually its most thrilling, even if it's absurd. Lastly, while some will be able to find merit and power in this film about a young woman's (out of control) sexual desire, most will find it simply too much.
