When is a relationship really genuine?
15 August 2000 | by Martin-117See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this film. It starts off rather slowly, but it carefully weaves a web of trust and distrust, faithfulness and betrayal, hope and fear, in which nothing is predictable, as it tears away the superficial appearances of conformity and contentment. Every scene in the end contributes to an intense examination of a marriage, and the strengths and weaknesses of the partners, especially as seen from the perspective of the wife, Sara.
