Storyline

Johan (Carsten Frank) is a successful artist whose work is surreal and symbolic. One evening before returning home to his wife Rosa (Lina Romay), he encounters a woman (Fata Morgana) in a bar. The two knew each other in the past and she demands a meeting with him. We see in flashback the history Johan and the woman have - they were involved in a Sadomasochistic relationship twenty years ago before Johan achieved success. In fact it is revealed that the woman is the key to Johan's life now. We see that the woman made Johan make her a promise at the height of sexual torment. The deal is that in exchange for a successful life he would surrender his, at the time, unborn daughter to the woman. Johan's now adult daughter, Lucy (Carina Palmer)is unaware of the deal her father made. Johan's wife Rosa is terrified that the woman has now come to collect her daughter and Johan has to confront the woman, today, whether he likes it or not.

A complete load of rubbish!
1 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I watched an English dub of this film, which, though it's hard to believe such a thing is possible, made a dreadful movie even worse. The plot was infantile, the 'eroticism' was about as non-erotic as it is possible to get and the actors, of both genders, were hardly blood tingling! I think the actors who read the dubbed script, particularly the male lead, learned the fine nuances of delivery from reading the warnings on the back of cigarette packets.

I have tried, as I do when writing reviews for the I.M.D.B, to find a single redeeming thing about the film but I am defeated. The film was a failure on almost every front - as a horror movie it was laughable, as an erotic film it was a bore and the story line was, I'm sure written by a couple of seven-year-olds!

Altogether a complete waste of 90 minutes. Mr Franco will never be a Martin Scorsese or even a Tinto Brass but this is awful even by his standards!
