Rather advanced soft-porn with a script!
24 August 2002 | by (Stockholm) – See all my reviews

Considering the pretty advanced soft-porn this film isn't actually half bad. The plot is about the murder of a stripper, a good-looking and filthy rich male prime suspect who hires a stunning female super- lawyer to defend him not only in court but also against a bent cop who also happens to be the ex-husband of the lawyer. Seen it before? Yes and no, because the script avoids most of the normal Hollywood clichés in the sense that just when you think you can tell what´s going to happen next it doesn't. Unfortunately most of the actors are not as good as the twists of the script and although they may look their parts most of them can't act them. Finally, if you do not like explicit sex- scenes, and I do not mean the "Basic instinct" and "Sliver"-league, this film is not for you. On the other hand if you do like watching beautiful people involved in sado-masochistic sex-play, which actually fits into the plot, then it is.
