One of the Best Hardcore Films of All Time, 12 January 2008
Author: anharmyenone from USA

Thought-provoking and emotionally affecting, at times sweet, at times disturbing, this is one of my favorites of all time. The soundtrack is outstanding and pulls you in. The screenplay and acting are among the best for an explicit film. The emotional impact of this film is right up there with "Story of Joanna", "Devil in Miss Jones", and "Water Power". Harry Reems is surprisingly good here and the female lead, Shawn Harris is outstanding. Too bad she did not do more films. She had the looks and enough talent that she could have worked in mainstream B movies. Oh well I guess she found something else to do with here life. Jamie Gillis has a minor role as a bad guy. Too bad we couldn't have seen more of him as he is the best actor working in this genre at the time the film was made.
