A man and a woman, secretly in love, alone in a room. They desire each other, want each other, and even bite each other. In the afterglow, they share a few sweet nothings. At least the man seemed to believe they were nothing. Now under investigation by the police and the courts, what is he accused of? Written by

I loved this picture. Everything about it is beautifully done. Acting, editing, screen play, direction, music, all contribute to what is one of the best mysteries on screen that I've seen. But the picture defies classification as a mystery. It plows through the ambiguous details of a passionate affair, unfulfilled marriages, and police investigation that results in convictions of murder and life sentences. The details of the script have been well reported in the other user reviews, so i won't get into them here. My only comment is in the meaning of the film to me. What I came away with is a conclusion that the lovers were found guilty not for what they did, but for what they willed. Their guilt was in their desire, guilt enough for a moral conviction punished by the state with a life sentenced to live with their guilt.
