The gorgeous and sexy Claire Dennison is the successful manager of the advertisement agency Image Engine and married and in love with the middle-aged psychologist Jonathan Dennison. Their life is perfect but Jonathan is not good in bed, frustrating Claire's desires. When a colleague suggests Claire to fantasize with Jonathan to bring passion to their relationship and have kinky sex with her husband, she pretends to be a sexy Italian but Jonathan does not participate in the game, and Claire asks him "to play the Italian lover Roberto" in the future. When Claire travels in a job assignment, she sees Jonathan fashionably dressed and wearing a different hair style in the hotel lobby and she drags him to her room and has kinky sex with him. Then they schedule through e-mail a next encounter in New York; in the morning, Jonathan calls Claire in the cell phone and she realizes that the man on her bed is a complete stranger. Sooner the man stalks Claire and introduces himself to her as Simon ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

A new spin on Jekyll and Hide!
13 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

In my opinion this film is far better than the rating on IMDb and I consider it worthy of at least a 6 or a 7, and I have chosen the latter. It is an entertaining drama which keeps the viewer engrossed throughout and for anyone who says something like the story is ridiculous, well take a look at Harry Potter. A successful business woman in a loving marriage acts on 'impulse' to have a brief liaison with someone who is the spitting image of her husband. He it transpires is crazy and wants more, she realizes her mistake and wants out. Things spiral into pure melodrama thereafter. The lead actress Willa Ford gives an excellent performance and is eye catching and convincing.

However pride of place goes to the male lead one Angus Macfadyen who steals the show and has a impressive performance CV.

A great feat of acting to portray a goodie and a baddie at the same time and this actor's accomplishment is to subtly portray in each character the good and the bad. A portrayal which is extremely well done.

Add to the picture a clever script then all in all this is a superior movie, well worth a look!
