Interesting dialog, but could use better acting
3 September 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

It has been a while since I've seen this one, so I can't remember names in the movie. This Mark Lester flick deals with the subject of love, sex, the relationship between tham, and how to deal with it, if you are a parent.

Lester's father is a well acomplished shrink, and has brought up Mark to freeminded and un shackled by the morality of the time. They go on vacation to some remote place (Movie takes place probably in the early 1800's) where he meets a woman who shares the same ideology with her child as he does. They fall in love at the same time that Lester and the girl begin to fall in love. They begin to confuse sex with love, since they are both attracted to each other and are bent on doing it, however the moment is always spoiled by analitical and intellectual conversations on how they will go about doing it. They begin to hate each other, but this draws them closer, and in the end, out of a heated argument get lost in passion.

Not very well acted, but the movie does intullectually explorer the issue of love and sex. It also can show the confusion between feelings when no walls or barriers are are in place to guide us through our moral walk on this planet.

Great movie to see. Good luck trying to find it though!
