A class act soap opera for the intelligence.
29 October 1999 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

A clever and bizarre angle to "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". At times you think this is campy and over the top, but the underlying poetic soul comes across strong and believable thanks to the performances of the two leads. One worth tracking down.
