3 poignant, romantic tales, wonderfully crafted.
25 March 1999 | by (Lucas Buck, NC) – See all my reviews

You can't judge a video by its cover

When you first pick up a box or disk entitled "Women and Men 2", you're thinking some sort of erotic thriller. The last thing you expect to see is 'produced by David Brown', a man known for producing superior quality motion pictures (Jaws, A Few Good Men, Driving Miss Daisy to mention a few).

What you get is a trio of poignant shorts, about mature relationships between men and women. What you get are the talents of Matt Dillon and Juliette Binoche, Mike Figgis and Jonathan Demme as well as other talented, but lesser known performers..

The stories are well crafted the performances excellent-a nice diversion of 90 or so minutes.
