12 May 2004 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Generally I am a Borowczyk fan. So I start from a position of sympathy.

The film has a certain gritty urban style to it, and it is not by any means his worst. For instance the courting scene across the Metro line is inventive, and the scenes are often originally shot.

However the film must rate as underwhelming chiefly because it does not really go anywhere. It all leads up to a fairly brutish love making scene which had long been trailed. I did not find it erotic and there is no trademark nudity.

So what? I thought. And moved on .....
