This is one of those movies I would want to see again. Lot of the moments of the movie that I watched as a teen stays in memory. However this is not available either online or in stores. Would be great if any one knows how to find a copy.
Scenes I remember vividly is the boy taking the cycle on the train with good music accompanying, how he attempts to lie and his naiveté. Katia was of course stunningly beautiful. The last scene was very memorable too.
The director Scott Murray was well known as an editor of a famous Australian magazine 'Cinema Papers". It was released in India as "Devil in the Flesh" and it has an extraordinary run - with packed houses. The distributor for the movie in India of course smiled all the way to the bank. When searching for "Devil in the Flesh" online however, all one gets is the other more famous 1986 movie, which is also a very good movie, but in my memories I rate this one higher. Will be waiting to see if I can get a copy or download anywhere. Appreciate if anyone knows how.
