Vibrating with humanity, it's a potent portrait of love, ranging from the purely carnal to the impurely sublime.

It isn't the sex that shocks here, it's the chilling core of loneliness. Intimacy dares to cut deep, and its daring gets to you.

New York Post

By David Sterritt
Plays like a warmed-over "Last Tango in Paris," with more explicit sex but a lower level of originality and acting skill.
