So, just watched Anna, the Russian version of Atomic Blonde I guess, along with Midsommar, and I have some beef!
Look, I am all for representation, or whatever that was but, what the hell was Anna and Maud’s relationship?!
First of all, there was no build up! Maud was wet for Anna the moment she laid eyes on her! The first time they slept together they hadn’t even talked, and it was because some girls were fucking a Dude in Anna’s room! She all but just showed up in Maud’s room, stripped down and got into bed! Not even a hello! Not even a, can I sleep here for tonight!
The get this, their awesome sex that they apparently have, we only hear about it on the phone with Anna’s superior! Now, that wouldn’t be so bad! I mean, they do have sex, even if it is off screen. What hits in the soul is the fact that the other sex she has, with men, is shown! Fuck, did we even see the two kiss?! I don’t even remember! Wait, I think there was that one time…
Meanwhile the making out sessions with the guys, who by the way were agents from different factions and it wasn’t like she was just leading them on and using them for her ends! No, she loved them, and it was plain clear that she loved them because apparently the passion between them and her was A OK to show but not the one she had with Maud!
Speaking of which, when she was with Maud, it was Maud that was giving and giving and giving! There wasn’t a spec of affection coming from Anna! Everything was so fuckin infuriating! Anna was looking for freedom all her life! She was looking for a good life that she did not have! Here she meets Maud, who is all good, who is planning a better life for both and while she is telling Anna all this, Anna isn’t even paying fuckin attention!
The only thing stopping me from throwing the keyboard away is the fact that there is hope! There is hope that Maud was the END GAME! In the end she said goodbye to both the men and disappeared from the secrets services and thus free to live her life normally! There is hope that she and Maud finally get to live together in peace somewhere!
But do we even get closure to that? Fuck no! Do we get closure to Maud finally finding out that Anna was a spy?! Hell no!! One more time I ask…What the fuck Mr. Besson!? This is so infuriating?! I don’t know if I should be offended or be happy because the reasons to be happy are all speculation!
Like, was Anna even into Maud at all? Was she just using her as cover?! Does the writer and Director even care about people who will be invested in Anna and Maud’s relationship?! How about our fuckin closure, huh?!At the very least give Anna and Maud that conversation!! At this rate Maud will live forever in the dark and that would have been such a drama worthy scene! Then again, that is if Anna really cared for her!
Agh, I better stop because this is getting quite difficult!
