Laura (Laura Benson), an Englishwoman in her early 50s living in an anonymous German city, decides to explore her aversion to physical contact and sex by staging a series of encounters. Among the people sharing stories and acts of intimacy are a male hustler, a trans sex worker and a young man with a severe physical disability; while from behind the camera the figure of the director (Pintilie herself) reflects on the drama, lending the film the confessional intimacy of a therapy session. Touch Me Not explores with intelligence and sensitivity sexuality at its most expansive, diverse views of physical beauty and sensuality, and the ambiguous terrain between fiction and documentary.
