Quotes

Michael: I lied... it was always devastating. Always a crucifixion. What women will never understand is the weight of having to be the constant pursuer... and the pain of every death when it's a no.

A raw and stirring love story
7 February 2012 | by htblue71-286-7687See all my reviews

Being a fan of Eric Schaeffer movie since (If Lucy Fell).I never know what to expect with his movies. So I wasn't disappointed with charmingly bitter sweet and very edgy movie. We see Michael Shiver character from his Eric's movie Fall. Many years later and thousands of dollars in debt.Michael ends up in lovely Paris (which the city is a character all on it's own).Where he on a path getting his life back on track. But his inner masochistic demons tend to show up and make it impossible to have the love his so wants. He meets a complicatedly distant Parisian women and here ensues the dark and edgy love story. Eric's performance is raw and gritty.He has honest approach to love and life with his writing. And sheds light on misunderstood world of BDSM and what motivates someone to delve into that so recklessly. A not your run of the mill love story and it will stick with you for a long time after you watch it.
