great movie
23 November 2001 | by (Paranaque, Philippines) – See all my reviews

the movie was far ahead of its time. i just got to watch this film recently in wowow -- a japanese cable channel available here in the philippines -- and as i was watching the film, i thought that the movie was made in 1999 or later. i was very surprised to find in the credits that the film had a copyright year of 1987. amazing!

i think that most of the themes of the movie: love, sex, finding the right person, being a loner, were tackled in a timeless manner, such that they are still applicable now as they were 14 years ago.

all in all, a great movie. definitely, a must see!
