A woman discovers becoming attracted to the wrong man can have deadly consequences in this tense erotic thriller. Linda (Nastassia Kinski) is a woman whose life would seem ideal on the surface: she runs a thriving business and is happily married to Phil (Jeff Fahey), a psychiatrist. But a faint air of discontent has begun to creep into her relationship, and when Phil arranges for Linda to hire Sean (Josh Holloway), one of his patients, as an assistant, she finds herself seriously tempted for the first time. Linda impulsively sleeps with Sean one night, but the next day decides she made a mistake and tries to break off her affair. Sean, however, is not willing to give her up so easily, and his attraction to her soon becomes a dangerous obsession. Written by

Towards the end, the girl is tied up in the backseat of the car. As the guy drives by, he sees her palms pressed against the glass with rope around her wrists. In the following scene, her hands are facing the wrong direction for her to have been able to do that, and she is tied up in a way that would prevent her from lifting her hands up to the glass.

A well thought out plot
5 March 2004 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

For all the negative comments, it looks like if you follow Nastassja Kinski nobody likes the movie, but I had never heard of any of these actors and just caught the movie on cinemax. Its not another skin flick, you have to watch the movie to realize the topic is completly adult to begin with, and the sex scenes are very necessary to portrait what the director wants us to see.

The movie I think is very well done, the psychotic patient that gets released and ends up with his doctors wife, only to cause a mess of problems. The patient is brilliant, he will let his girl do whatever she wants, in exchange for his full attention as well (something close =b). As soon she changes her mind, it gets messy. He also has some psycic sensitivity as you watch the film. The interactions between the psychiatrists husband and wife is believable for somebody who is blinded by emotion, and the husband knows how to play on it (or avoid it) just like little kids avoid situations.

This movie has so many brilliant mini aspects of it, I dont understand how its getting a 4.0/10.0, it is deserving of much more. If you watch the movie for the thrill of a movie I would hate it too, you have to watch it to get into the characters head to appreciate this movie, or else most of the plot basis is gone, leaving an empty movie with some funky things happening.
