Excellent movie, Well worth hunting down
21 March 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I thought this was an excellent film and I was surprised to find out how little-known it is. What's best about this movie is that it can be extremely disturbing and yet very believable at the same time. It shows what two minds are capable of when they become obsessed with each other. I would also have to say that there was nothing sexual about the girls relationship (as hinted at in the plot keywords). They just had an intense understanding of each other which allowed them to get dangerously close, but not sexual. Excellent acting, intense drama, I gave it an 8/10.
