A Brilliant and Insightful little film
6 November 2013 | by l-s-s-yarberrySee all my reviews

This little made for TV movie was based on an article in Allure Magazine, February 1999, by Amanda Vaill "Rated X -Sex Lessons of a Paris Madam. I highly recommend the movie as it is very informative of how to deal with the collapse of a marriage and how to keep a relationship alive no matter your age. It is fun, insightful and intriguing. Both Linda Hamilton as the jilted wife, and Jacqueline Bisset as Madam Simone prove they are brilliant method actors. I remember seeing this movie when it first came out, now years later watching it again it reminds me that making the little parts of life enjoyable is important in a relationship, a fact so many forget in their busy day to day lives.
