3.0 out of 5 stars The Pains of Passion April 14, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
An unusual film about sensuality, morality, and the consequences of free love. Two married couples swap partners for sexual pleasure. I liked this film but it will not be everyone's cup of tea. It is beautifully photographed and has wonderful music. Everything about the film conveys sensuality without being vulgar. The characters pay a price, though, for indulging their passions.

4.0 out of 5 stars nnice film about love and sex July 22, 2001
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I bought this movie without seeing it because it's from the creators of Angels and Insects which I enjoyed, and my gamble turned out to pay off pretty well. Not a fancy movie or a masterpiece of any kind, but a beautifully filmed and subtle film about the relationships between two couples. The scenery is really gorgeous, and I found the dialogue to be sparce but poignant and the sex to be tasteful and almost innocent. IT's almost a coming of age story about two middle aged couples who grow up the hard way. Nothing to die for, but an enjoyable and sensual film.

3.0 out of 5 stars For Twin Peaks & Sheryl Lee fans December 21, 2008
By Adam
Format:DVD
I bought it on VHS recently for a buck and it's mainly worth watching for Sheryl Lee (Fiona) who played Laura Palmer on David Lynch's Twin Peaks. She plays a very sensual, similar character to Palmer in this 1997 film. I enjoyed the soundtrack by Angelo Badalamenti whose score resembles his compositions on Twin Peaks. The best musical score is during the main credits at the beginning, it's haunting and beautiful. Other than that the plot is not that great, I found myself forwarding a couple of times. Again, Sheryl is alluring in the movie, you won't be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Rich Delight! July 16, 2006
Format:DVD
I lush film of great intensity and subtlty. The relationships are intricate, and developed with admirable depth, particularly the character portrayed by Charles Dance, who combines passion with warmth, sensitivity and whimsy, and reveals the inner thoughts of the character to the audience with convincing candor- enough, but not TOO MUCH! A visual delight- a memorable adventure!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Rather Insipid Drivel February 11, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
This film is, rather sadly, lacking in merit. It isn't sensual, it isn't inspired and it isn't worth much time.
The storyline involves two couples in an exotic country who engage in various escapades and the (sometimes unpleasant) consequences of said liasions. However, the thin plot meanders and the characters become unsympathetic early on. This viewer became utterly disinterested within the first half hour.
There are a handful of exquisitely filmed scenes that make wonderful use of light, shadow and color. However, these snippets of brilliance cannot and do not carry the day.
