I don't mean the title of this review in a nasty, pornographic sense. This movie depicts the education of a woman who suffers grievous losses at different times of her life. As often happens, she loses people whom she treasures suddenly and without the possibility of understanding. Regardless of how old you are, if you aren't mature enough to recognize that, contrary to the feel-good nostrum that "everything happens for a reason," the simple fact is that a lot of terrible things happen for no reason at all, don't watch this movie because it will make absolutely no sense to you.
Other "adult" elements which the immature are not ready to experience: cinematography that finds beauty in a raw, seaside town, a pervasive sense of quiet and peace, an emotional journey from lonely despair to acceptance.
I've watched this movie three or four times and have loved it every time.
