User Review Great movie! I don't usually watch erotic film, but this was recommended to me as a balanced interesting movie that was also erotic, and it was terrific. There is a real plot, realistic couple and that made the erotic parts all the more meaningful. I also liked the fact that these actors were interested in the film and the nudity/sexuality part came as a natural outcome, not the other way around. I can imagine that dudes who watch regular "porn" might not like it as much because there is an actual story leading up to the "porn" part,and the erotic scenes are meant to add depth to the story and also extra pleasure, rather than the usual goal of pornographic movies. For those of us who want something more sensitive to relationship and to the woman's perspective, this film was great.
