Good one
29 January 2006 | by joy-131See all my reviews

Saw this movie many years ago. Heard a song on the radio recently by U2 that I'm sure was in this movie soundtrack, sung by the female lead or a voice-over...Desire. Song struck a chord back then and now. Recall the lead performances in this film to be decent but not befitting either actor, but it's a nice if not quite believable story about a young man who has spent his life in isolation "crystal" or Plexiglas enclosed room due to some kind of nonspecific immune deficiency disease, said to be a congenital anomaly. He admires an up and coming female rock star, meets and forms a relationship with her. I recall a steamy love scene that takes place with the glass wall between them, innovative for its time. Good chick flick. I would recommend seeing it now, even though it's older and not worthy of the term classic. I wouldn't mind seeing it again, the soundtrack was memorable, apparently!
