In an interview about this movie with UK Film Threat magazine in April 1993, director Uli Edel stated that while other actresses approached for the role of Rebecca Carlson balked at the explicit nature of the sex scenes, Madonna had her agent pursue the role for her, and Madonna told Edel that no matter how far the scenes would go, she would "always go a step further". Edel also confirmed in the same interview that Madonna refused to take direction for the sex scenes. See more »
When Frank handcuffs Rebecca, in the wide shots the sleeves of Rebecca's robe cover her forearms almost to her wrists, but in the close ups of Rebecca's hands, the sleeves barely reach her elbows. See more »
The UK video, claimed on the box to be "the full uncut version" shows slightly more graphic footage of the sex scenes than the version featured on the UK region 2 DVDs, as well as American R-rated DVD versions and unrated DVD versions. This is noticeable in the scene where the police "investigators" watch the video tape playing in Andrew Marsh's bedroom after his untimely death and when Rebecca Carlson and Frank Dulaney get personal as well professional for the first time.

I couldn't tell you the plot of this movie. Actually, I don't know if this movie had a plot. What I do know is that Madonna is in it and boy or boy, is she ever. Another courtroom drama without the drama, the only reason one will watch this movie is Madonna. The passion between Dafoe and Madonna is the only thing worth watching. That and the nudity and strong sexual acts, Body of Evidence is a left over movie stolen from the Basic Instinct genre. The courtroom and crime scenes is just background to what the movie is, Madonna in the bedroom.
