User Reviews

This was released in French Canada
5 July 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Greta Scacchi plays a famous feminist activist, while Vincent D'Onofrio portrays a humble Scots fisherman in this film from director Andrew Birkin. Despite the obvious ideological chasm between them, the two fall in love. The couple spend the rest of the film running away from commitment, only to be reunited at every turn. Salt on Our Skin is also known under the title Desire....This films was released in French in Montreal (along with the other Vincent D'Onofrio film Naked Tango)......these two films were released together by C/FP Videoand are very hard to find in the French Version these days......Naked Tango was released in Quebec under the title "Tango Passion" and Desire was released in Quebec under the name "Abandoned Passion"......they did not sell very well as French Language versions and most have disappeared.
