Balanced portrayal of Infidelity
25 April 1999 | by (Phoenix, Arizona) – See all my reviews

I liked this movie because it was a well balanced portrayal of infidelity and how it affected the lives of the three people involved - the husband, wife and mistress. Joe, the husband, becomes infatuated with a young girl who works as being a dominant female bondage mistress - disciplining men for a fee. Joe becomes obsessed with her and even takes her to New York with him on a business trip. Yet, Joe still loves his wife who he's been married to for 18 years, and his 10 year old daughter. The mistress only wants Joe if he breaks cleanly from his wife. Joe and the mistress struggle with this dilemma for a large part of the movie.

The movie describes well the emotions experienced by all three people, yet the ending is weak and too conventional. But probably truer to life than "romantics" would want to believe.

The acting is adequate, not great, but not bad either. Length is about right and there are no long drawn out parts - the movie moves along at a good pace. There is considerable nudity and sex play, but it is done in a tasteful way and well related to the theme of the movie.

Recommend seeing it.
