Assunta de Rossi,
The story of two lovers, a woman and young republican, who meet in hotel rooms over the 90's to explore their sexual prowess. Only when they venture out of 'the box', does reality begin to tear at the fabric of their private, existential affair. Nothing stays the same. They marry. Guess what happens after that?Written by
I rented this on a whim from Blockbuster, in exchange for a DVD I was returning. Never again.
The fact that this 2006 movie has only 29 votes and only 1 other review at the time I'm writing this one (Jan 2011) already says a lot. Indeed, the movie is - bottom line - a waste of time. For an interesting portrayal of power play, watch "Nine 1/2 Weeks" instead. For relationship evolution over time, there are countless better movies. This one isn't even sexy, although its theme is a carnal affair.
What else? Pseudo-intellectualism, bad editing, amateur acting, and a gratuitous cartoon character at one point.
