A Powerfully Visionary Masterpiece
21 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The screen veritably explodes with passion in this fantastically erotic film starring John Ritter and Karen Carlson. Neither actor have ever been more superb in any role and their chemistry in this motion picture is truly flammable. With extraordinary detail and understanding, the passionate affair of a young man and older woman is portrayed with fiery imagery heretofore never seen in a television production. Their desire is palatable as we watch their intense relationship burn in visions of eroticism so incredibly moving that we look away at times in embarrassment. This is a film that broke new ground and challenged the production code to change its very parameters. While may judge it to simply too much to take, for those who have known such passion in their lives, the sparks this produces will ignite memories of stunning power.
