Storyline

Camille and Martin are in love and teachers at a christian college; they get the opportunity to get a better job, but they would have to marry for that. But when Camille's dog dies, she recognizes that her love for Martin is not even as big as the love for her dog. After that, Camille gets to know Petra, and Petra falls in love with Camille. They meet again, but Camille is very unsure about her feelings. When Martin is away for a weekend, Camille and Petra meet in the Circus where Petra is working as an acrobat. They spend the night together, but Martin finds out about it and is shocked. He has an argument with Camille, and she goes burying her dog in the snow, and falls asleep...

wonderful and beautifully shot film
29 January 2003 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Bought this film several years back. It had played at several theatres during its first release but I never did get down to actually viewing this film. When I finally bought the film and watched it, it definately went beyond my expectations. Everything about the film was near perfect. One could feel the emotions that each character was conveying on screen. The film was beautifully shot. The love scenes were incredibly erotic. A near perfect film.
