In a small town in Illinois manners are very strict. But hypocrisy and puritanism of this town will be subjected to severe stress, when a 35-year-old married Lyle will have a whirlwind romance with a French newcomer Juliette. Their relationship is so free and shockingly, that will surely lead to conflict.
Review: Small farm town that is on the ground Lyle – a man who is “too much flesh.” These rumors about the town and everything is sort of used to, but then there is a Frenchwoman who develop this myth. Lyle happy that finally it can be with this woman, not his wife’s death is blackmailing former lover and strict puritanical views.
“Too much flesh” is clearly not a film about dreamers as it may seem in the picture. He is very specific – alienation and melancholy. Faded colors and simple plot, but it is the highlight.
