An ex-model, now a wife and mother, takes a break from her out-of-work husband, who's been surly and drinking heavily. She goes to a Miami resort for a couple of days where she meets a stranger with whom she has a 24-hour fling. She returns home to a renewed husband who has found a job and put aside the bottle. Turns out, he's been hired by the same man with whom she had the affair. She says nothing, and little by little, the boss drives a wedge between the couple, playing one against the other. Soon she and her husband are separated and in a custody battle. Will they come to their senses and realize who is manipulating them? What if he stops at nothing? Written by <>

If it was Grace's and Matt's intent to lure Julian to the edge of the cliff and push him off, there would be no need to bail out of their own moving vehicle and risk injury or death themselves. See more »

Say Nothing-Novel Way for Sexual Harassment **1/2
5 July 2007 | by edwagreenSee all my reviews

Sexual harassment takes an interesting turn here. Have an affair with a girl and then hire her husband as a top executive and keep the action going. This is exactly what we see in this film here.

Billy Baldwin, as the sinister Julian,has what it takes to provide an excellent performance. Ms. Kinski is also quite effective as the woman taken in by this charade.

What Baldwin does to keep he plot going is mind boggling. Trying to kill Kinski's young child while keeping her husband so busy in the business becomes somewhat unreal.

The end fizzles out because you want Baldwin to get what is coming to him and that does not occur. Even crippled, Baldwin can still plan a new offensive especially with all the money that he has. Did his former wife kill herself or did Baldwin commit that act as well? This is not explained.
