This movie is a difficult one to watch, but well worth it. The sex scenes have been handled with tact. This is an honest look at the marriage between a relatively stable man, and a definitely unbalanced woman. Though it's Terrence Stamp's performance that is the best, Sheffer and Lee give moving and audacious performances in this unique love story.

The music is amazing. It works so well in the film, and it hightens the mood of the movie very well.

Not everyone will like it. A film about adult sexuality, where sex isn't portrayed in a cartoonish "teenage" way, is a daring idea. But it works beautifully.
