Sounds interesting? Yes, it is! Only, probably not for the reason that you are reading this review. This film takes an in-depth view into infidelity and extra-marital relationships. Even the downright repellent aspects.

Alina (the very beautiful Joanna Pacula) and Stefan (the surprisingly good actor Julian Sands) are a married couple. It is quite evident right from the start that Stefan is extremely promiscuous and slowly it dawns on us that so is Alina. Only, Alina's promiscuity is limited to one man, Paolo.

Stefan and Alina apparently have an agreement to tell each other everything and Alina openly discusses Paolo with Stefan. Soon, Stefan regrets the situation he is in and pines for Alina when she's gone. He even stops sleeping with other women (which he used to do earlier as self-compensation) as he finds he doesn't want to anymore. Though Alina insists that she still loves Stefan dearly, he cannot bear the thought of her with another man.

Stefan soon becomes depressive and follows Alina around. Where he used to ask Alina to tell him every detail of what she did with Paolo, he now can't bear to hear it. Now, the twist comes in the form of sexual perversion - Paolo one day explores the realms of S and M with Alina and she finds that she enjoys it too. Stefan urges her to stop her relationship with Paolo and come back to him. This eventually happens (as expected) after Paolo apparently goes too far and hurts her too much. Yes, happy ending!

The rating is almost entirely for the way the director has handled such a sensitive issue. The question does pop into your head as to how a couple who love each other so much tolerate each other's transgressions so easily. In fact, it almost becomes a part of their routine lives. There are enough and more scenes of lovemaking. Unfortunately, most of them are on some floor of the Censor Board office. No, no - I didn't mean lovemaking on the floor of the office, what I meant was... oh, forget it.

This is not the potboiler type of porn flick - it is meant for serious viewing and for people finding it relevant... serious introspection, I should say! Wise man says - get the CD.
