Solid movie about a woman in search of herself
11 December 1999 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland) – See all my reviews

This film does not break any new ground, but the script and cinematography are solid and satisfying. Not brilliant--just very good. It is about a woman lost in the roles of wife and mother and in search of a greater sense of identity. If nothing else, see this movie for John Lone's performance as the traditional Balinese dancer. He is exotic, mysterious and unobtainable (I am reminded of his role in M. Butterfly). Very remarkable
