Storyline

What happens when business mixes with pleasure? Powerful tycoon Alexander Schutter masterminds a dangerous game of seduction by manipulating associates into satisfying his voyeuristic needs. Schutter meets his match in Isabel, a strong-willed environmentalist who eventually grows from being a worthy opponent to an enthusiastic player. Rolf, Schutter's right-hand man, complicates the situation by falling in love with Isabel. The three become entangled in a passion-charged triangle driven by desire, risk, and fantasy. Ultimately, Schutter's erotic game spins out of control, disintegrating into a spiral of ecstasy, envy... and self-destruction. Written by lament

To save her company a woman must gain a powerful man's trust at a price.
12 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

Personally I thought it was an excellent movie!! Everything worked well and I loved the casting. For me the storyline flowed along quite nicely. I guess it just depends on what sort of story you are looking for.

Jeroen Krabbe as Alex is so seductive in this it makes you shiver with desire. He has a very commanding presence yet with seductive undertones.

Alex's "driver" Rolf is brilliantly played by Gary Stretch and his performance is very believable. Everyone's performance I thought was brilliant, it all gelled quite nicely. I can't say too much more without giving hints away but let's just say Zalmon King has indeed done it again!!

High marks for a brilliant movie!!
