"Very few films can hold your attention when it has only 2 chracters for almost the entire film. This film is haunting, worring and sexy all at the same time. The location is fabulous and the acting is superb."

"A reclusive woman keeps a man who drifts ashore under the idea that they are on an unknown island. This is potentially deep. It touches upon ideas that woman needs man, or vice versa, heterosexually speaking. It hints that even misanthropes need companionship sometimes. Still, the movie also felt like "Misery" repeated. I hated watching James Spader's character be duped. This movie was long and had few sounds and dialogue. It seemed artsy and noir, in the French kind of way. This is an arthouse film, certainly not meant for the masses. I actually missed out on some of the dialogue because the lead actress' accent was so thick. This DVD really needed captions. This could be a deep meditation on the human condition, but it's still a bit of a yawner."
