Sexual Tension on the Beach
5 March 2003 | by (Washington, DC) – See all my reviews

This is an excellent story of repressed sexuality. We have a governess that has problems far more troubling than any problems that the two boys in the film have. Add in a very attractive local hunky male and you have a prescription for disaster.

The acting in this film is quite excellent. Ms. Schygulla as the governess is memorable. The actors playing the children are excellent. This film has a pleasant beginning but things quickly become sordid. The ending is quite bizarre and even a little unexpected.

I can recommend this film without reservation. 8 out of 10.
