About The Event

US press about "Touch Me Not":

The New York Times: "An intense, hard to shake meditation on the nature of physicality"

The Hollywood Reporter: "A relentlessly immersive tour de force. An eye-opening look at human sexuality. Striking for its intelligence, self-assurance and originality."

IndieWire: "Radically humane... an unclassifiable film... a bold treatise about the strange (and often estranged) relationship humans have with their own bodies."

CriterionCast: "One of 2018’s great discoveries. It’s films like this that make cinema the boundary-pushing medium it has become."

"Touch Me Not" is coming to American cinemas distributed by Kino Lorber.
