The falacies of money and power in plain view
16 May 2002 | by See all my reviews

Aristocratic society collides with the working class aesthetic in a film renowned for its eerie take on sex and its consequences. While the lurid detail of the relationships is rather subtle and soft, the implications of these actions prove to be mightier than any fight or explosion. Tempered with undertones of lust and impropriety, this film takes on this subject in such a way, the viewer might wonder if this story really is about sex. While Miss Mary will not tantalize audiences with its sexual scenes of conquest, its underlying message may be more powerful than anything else.
