This movie is somewhat hidden from a lot of people. To my knowledge, the film was made in 1999 but not released until quit a few years later (thought I'm not sure of it).

Good movie, not necessarily for the romance, but for the quality as a whole. I recommend to anyone who comes by it. I rate it 7/10 Rated R-language and some violence (also has some sensuality)
