Highly erotic adaption of D. H. Lawrence's "Lady Chatterley's Lover"
Patricia Javier is a Goddess. She looks amazing (think Vivica A. Fox meets the young Penelope Cruz) and uses all her beauty in this adaption of D. H. Lawrence's erotic classic "Lady Chatterley's Lover". The plot loosely follows the novel and offers room for some steamy sex scenes. In those, the two female stars (Sunshine Cruz and Patricia Javier) shine.

The imagery and camera work is also nice but has a hard time catching up with Patricia. And so have the depth of the story, most of the other actors, the music etc. This means: The movie is only average - except for Patricia Javier. She's a Goddess. Oh, I've already said that? Well, it's worth repeating :)
