Man carries on "successful" double life
15 May 1999 | by (Calgary, Alberta) – See all my reviews

Disturbing, warm, beautiful. "Non-Fatal Attraction". A fantasy of a man who loves his wife and family, and his lover, successfully living two lives and eventually finding stability in both. Very erotic. Pascale Bussieres is incredible as the emotionally troubled young mistress who finally accepts her second place role. Ron Lea is wooden - ok for a fairy tale about double lives, but not convincing as the conscience challenged male.
