Showcase for Heather's gorgeous face
25 July 2002 | by See all my reviews

I saw this charming little film on cable late at night in 1996 or so. It was the first time I noticed Heather Graham, and I was spellbound. Watching her face with those huge blue eyes and full red lips was absolutely mesmerizing.

The film itself was strangely alluring. The cinematography, especially the fire-lit facial close-ups, was very pretty. I felt compelled to watch it. Also, I was intrigued by the unusual device of having the characters being able to communicate remotely via a "wind tunnel." I agree with the other poster's comment that it allowed the two principal characters to develop an intimacy that would have been unlikely otherwise.

Those looking for plot development or action needn't bother. This is a study of two characters and how they get to know each other in an unusual way. It's a nice alternative to most Hollywood crap.
