Storyline

After the death of his strictly religious parents, forlorn young Darkly gets lost in the woods. A truck driver, Jude, rescues the exhausted man, who has only a bible for comfort. He brings him to the house of Callie and Clay, two lovers who live in the forest. While Clay is away in the forest, beautiful Callie nurses Darkly back to health, and he develops an obsession with her that is totally contrary to his upbringing - a sexual obsession. When Clay returns home and Darkly sees the two lovers kiss, it is too much for him. Every night he hears them making love. Darkly's descent into madness has begun... An extremely dramatical and exciting ending! Written by Frank Wallner <wallnerf@informatik.tu-muenchen.de>

Passion Of Darkly Noon
6 December 2001 | by RUKIA19See all my reviews

I have to say this is not the type of film i thought Brendan Fraser would be in but i was wrong. Brendan was pain stakingly vulnerable as Darkly who is taken in by Callie where he was found in the forests.

The story follows on as Darkly is very religious Callie a free-

spirited girl and Darkly cant stand it because he looks up to his

parent and they taught how things should be.

Callie doesn't seem to agree and thinks life should be free and having

desires and love is not a crime.

His jealousy grows when Callie's boyfriend returns Darkly seems to be having some deep feelings for Callie which he can not control.

I thought this film was very intense and dark it was one of Brendan Fraser's darkest roles i've ever seen he played the role with sensitivity and vulnerability.
