An Erotic Tale of a Men Divided Between Love and Lust
Joe Goodman (Kristoffer Tabori) is a successful owner of a gallery, alcoholic but sober for eight years and going to AA meetings, married with Rita (Jane Kacsmarek) and having a teenager daughter, Samantha (Rachel Crane). In a bachelor party of a close friend hosted in his gallery, he meets the sexy hooker Wendy (Jennifer Sommerfield). He has a crushing for her and gets a close contact with her, being seduced and sharing fantasies of sadomasochism with her. He becomes divided between the love for Rita and the lust and desire for Wendy. I found this movie a surprisingly great erotic tale, approaching themes like middle-age crisis, sexual fantasies, frustration, lust, love and desire. My greatest negative remark is the option for a conservative end of the story: although I respect that, an amoral end would fit better. The cast has a great performance and even the erotic scenes are sensual, never vulgar. Jennifer Sommerfield is a beautiful and charming actress, and is perfect in the role of a prostitute. My vote is seven.
Title (Brazil): 'Desejos Selvagens' ('Wild Desires')
