Heart Wrenching Love Story
11 July 2001 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

My husband says I am way too picky about movies and maybe I am. But, for some reason this movie really gets to me. It's kinda like Bridges of Madison County, but with a highly erotic twist. Maybe I love this movie because I know what it's like to be with a nice guy who is so in love with you (and you love him), but there's this BAD BOY who draws you in like a sexual magnet; and it tears your heart having to choose. Not being able to choose between her two lovers, Brigitte Bako (Alex) decides to end her life. Did she leave her diary behind for Jake to find? I wonder. Anyway, if you like erotic movies where someone is torn between two lovers, then this movie is for you. If you think those kind of movies are CRAP, then do yourself a favor and STAY AWAY!! In general I don't think guys would like this movie. I, however, have always loved this movie and have waited for years for it to come out on DVD, and it finally has.
