The original added line to the title is far more accurate than what the Germans made of it (calling it "Dangerous Obsession"). I also heard some people complaining that this isn't as sensual/erotic as they hoped/were promised this to be. There is nudity and there intercourse, don't get this wrong, but it's all very weirdly done. And while weird can be good, it doesn't quite have the spark here.
It's also one thing to concentrate on the woman (who clearly has issues, some of them will be revealed over the course of the movie) and not show any other side of the male counter part (though if you are into mind games you might have an "excuse" for that). Making her "mysterious" along that way is fine. But neither the performance, the story itself or any "special effect" creates a real memorable or "wow" moment. So while this is a nice psychological study (decent movie overall), it lacks in many things to be considered really great
