Movie Reviews

Juan struggles against an obsessive bond with his sister
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Juan's self-imposed exile ends with the arrival of his sister, Ana, as he reluctantly resumes their uncestuous relationship. Wanting a normal life, but unable to resist the desire for and comfort in Ana's embrace, his conflicted actions affect those around them in surprising ways. The themes of rebelion and confinement are emphasised by the landscape of this tiny isolated village on the coast of Spain. The original musical score haunts the story, sharpening our experience of Juan's confusion and dispair."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great movie. It's interesting to see what a great actor Antonio Banderas always was, even as a young man. He's probably the bravest actor on the planet. Law of Desire proves that.He's so conflicted here and his sister manipulates him right down the drain. He's driven to save himself but he can't, she's too powerful. He finally pulls away but he's left alone, with nothing. She came to him eyes closed and she left that way.The landscape is beautiful. The idea of her power driving him to the edge, committing acts contrary to his nature, it's all very intense. He's drop dead gorgeous and probably 22. All that talent too. I heartily recommend this movie. I watch it over and over and see something new each time."
How movie tension done well, makes a film better....
D. Wright | Stone Mountain, Georgia United States | 03/06/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movie is fascinating on several levels, not the least of which is the tension it provokes in wanting to see past the action happening on screen. Anna and Juan's relationship and how destructive it is on not just themselves, but everyone with whom they come in contact. It's a movie that you'll continue to think about after it's all over."
NOT in Spanish

"The DVD copy I received (Platinum Studios) is DUBBED IN ENGLISH with no other options. My 1 star rating is for the misrepresentation, not the movie. I will not watch a dubbed film, nor would I have purchased it had I known."
