This movie shows the difference between gentle love and vigorous sex, the one that is like a drug.
A nice subtle movie about infidelity and all its consequences, and what sex and love are about in their different ways.
It has subtitles for the hard of hearing.
DVD quality is still good. Didn't really follow what the movie is about . . .
An enjoyable, albeit dated, character piece.
This was a very powerful film, demonstrating how repressing your natural animal instincts can ruin your life. It made me feel sad and it was also tellingly disturbing how warped the American psyche is when it comes to sex, love and desire.
I liked it. It would have been very progressive back when it was made. Great acting.
It took me two attempts to finish the movie. It was OK.
Slow moving.Incoherent story building
Smooth & hypnotic flick. Tame by today's standards, but a treat for fans of the excellent cast!
good light entertainmentto fill in a dull evening,a mix of off beat people each can hold an interest to the end of the film.I prefer a bitmore drama and action but watched to the finish .
A very good EROTIC type of " Sex " movie, the type that makes you think about it instead of graphically showing you everything. Very stimulating, interesting, a bit Artish; good if you like this sort of thing.
Strong character drama but after all these years I am really wondering what the fuss was all about?? It put Soderbergh on the map as an efficient filmmaker, delivering a solid performance piece at a low cost. But winning the Cannes Film Festival? Come on... Watch it to see a youthful Peter Gallagher, a gorgeous Andie MacDowell and a great James Spader.
A very boring little movie.
