Shifting along the boundary of documentary and fiction, Adina Pintilie’s Golden Bear winning Touch Me Not follows Laura, a middle-aged British woman, on a journey of reconciliation around her relationship with sex and physical intimacy.

Laura meets with sex workers and therapists — along with people whose unconventional physicality has changed their relationship with sex — in order to explore her deep-seated concerns and alter her connection with her body. With a strong aesthetic palette and experimental flourishes, Touch Me Not pulls no punches in its honest and engrossing adventure into the self.
