A bomb is about to go off in this extra-marital affair...but not the type the filmmakers intended
24 May 2014 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Little-seen Canadian-made melodrama, distributed stateside by Cinema Financial, has wealthy married lady Dyan Cannon cheating on her cold, heartless husband with a sexy Bohemian painter, which has resulted in a baby girl whom the husband almost believes is his. Gloppy, depressing soap opera without much point or appeal (beyond the presence of Cannon, whose on-screen name--Domino!--is as improbable as her staying with the husband after he has killed her dog). The lover (Donald Pilon, acting with his nostrils) audibly counts down the seconds before making love to Dyan, and later tastes her breast milk directly from the source. It's an insane and ridiculous fiasco. *1/2 from ****
