Movie Reviews

The Pains of Passion
Mitchell R. Alegre | Glenwood, New York | 04/15/2000
(3 out of 5 stars)

"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."
Nnice film about love and sex
Mitchell R. Alegre | 07/23/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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."
For Twin Peaks & Sheryl Lee fans
Adam | Chicago, IL | 12/22/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"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."
A Rich Delight!
Marie M. Escher | Arcata, CA, USA | 07/16/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"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!!!"
