“Everything starts with a decision…”
Intimacy (Intimidad) released on June 10th 2022 on Netflix with eight episodes available to stream now. The Spanish thriller-drama series stars Itziar Ituño, Patricia López, Ana Wagener, and Yune Nogueiras. Each episode runs for approximately 46-48 minutes.
A politician’s career is ruined when a recorded video of her sex life is leaked to the public.
Here is the trailer:
Intimacy will remind you of shows like The Undoing and Anatomy of a Scandal, but it also has an important message of its own, creating a gripping story involving four women and what happens to them when their right to privacy is violated. Is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
A relevant and important message.
The world has changed a lot and now it’s incredibly easy for someone’s right to privacy to be violated. The click of a button could damage someone’s reputation, career, and relationships. It’s something that one can never escape and it happens way too often. I thought the series really highlighted this well and highlighted a fear that is based very much in reality, which made this a compelling watch.
The women really stole the show in this series and I thought that all of them told their own unique story in an effective way. The performances were very believable and emotional.
Too many episodes…
This series should have been 4-6 episodes at most. I thought it really dragged things out and the pacing suffered as a result. The topic was interesting and the performances were solid, but it took me a while to get through this one and I think it lost a little bit of steam as it continued.
So am I in or out?
I’m in about 75 percent…
Intimacy highlights a relevant issue and the consequences surrounding it, which makes it a gripping watch, but it went on for a little bit too long, so don’t expect to be able to binge-watch this one that easily.
I hope you enjoyed the review and feel free to post your own thoughts and theories on Intimacy in the comments section below. Thanks so much for reading and happy viewing!

DON’T TAKE THE JOB…
It was only supposed to be temporary…but when Olivia Crewe accepts a new position that seems too good to be true, she soon discovers that twelve other girls previously had the same job as her. Only none of them lasted for more than thirty days. No notice. Nothing…right before they mysteriously disappeared without a trace.
