Unique, Intimate, and Evocative
14 July 2003 | by (Chicago USA) – See all my reviews

I feel I learned something from this movie. It is a unique, evocative investigation of intimacy, throwing light on the dark side of human nature. MacManus and Goldwasser conjure up compelling original characters, but the relationship they bring to life is the haunting portrait one is left with.
