A sexy film with a moral message
25 November 1999 | by (London) – See all my reviews

Middle-aged Carl is bored. Bored with his life, bored with his stale marriage, and jealous of his son's sex-life. This changes when he meets beautiful model Pamela (the gorgeous Veronica Cash) at his Clothes-Making Business, and after a brief moment of doubt and guilt embarks on a passionate fling with the 21 year beauty at her flat in Hollywood. The film deals with Carl's moral dilemma of cheating on his wife, with a younger and more beautiful model. The questions of infidelity and age-gaps are dealt with in this film, and a moral message is portrayed and put across amid the sex scenes.
