I caught this film at the Acapulco Black Film Fest. I think Trois successfully captures something that we rarely see on the big screen --Black sexuality. It's not raunchy, but not tame by any means. It doesn't take itself too seriously, but delves deeply into the politics of marriage, fidelity and lust. And there is a cool, unexpected twist at the end ala Fatal Attraction. I liked it. Kenya Moore and Gretchen Palmer are beautiful. And the men are wonderful... two of the hottest looking Black actors out there -- Gary Dourdan and Bryce Wilson. I hear this comes out Valentine's Day 2000 or somewhere around there. I'd recommend checking it out.
