Excellent, 30 May 2004
Author: onoeljr from California

This is one of the best movies I've ever seen. Why isn't it available on DVD or VHS? Is it because of the content? It should definitely be release. The intensity of the movie is outstanding. You are constantly thinking about the plot and on the edge of your seat. Romy gives one of the most wonderful performances any actress has ever given. I was surprise that nothing was ever heard of this movie at the Academy Awards. Maybe the content is too explicit for general release, but, why not put an appropriate label on the movie and release it? I think it is a shame that such on story with great acting is hidden from the public. This is such a well directed and acting movie, it is a shame to hide it from the public. Hope it can be released soon.
