Beautiful Art., 19 March 2000
Author: chaffeepdx from Portland, Oregon

The Sadness Of Sex is one of the best art works from Canada in year. Peta is now the girl of my dreams and there's no sadness about that. The mix between black, white and color is almost dream like. It's too bad more films aren't made like this more often. Oh, well one of these Hollywood will rediscover the sadness of sex.
