Some of the negative reviewers here seem to have too narrow a life experience to appreciate what they are being presented with. After all, not so many people get to experience the sexually charged environment being depicted. The nudity and love scenes in this movie are an essential element in the telling of this story. As for the distressingly controversial part of the story, I wasn't aware of that prior to watching. I was strongly disturbed and affected. I was also extremely grateful to the filmmaker and cast for presenting this extremely important, tragic issue to the world is so artful a manner. The desert scenery is beautiful. The lead female is excellent. Much of the supporting cast seem somewhat amateurish, but work very well in this production.
