It has been a while since I saw this flick but I remember very well that it left a huge impression on me. Since then, I have tried to watch more movies directed by Atom Egoyan (not really a success though since I have seen only 3 other movies directed by him 'Chloe', 'Where the Truth Lies' and 'Felicia's Journey') and unfortunately none of them managed to impressed like this feature which remains to this day my favorite movie directed by him. Basically, the story was just fascinating and it was very well directed and acted aswell. I was especially blow away by Mia Kirshner who was just about 19 years old when she made this flick. Unfortunately, her career was eventually even less impressive than Egoyan and she never became this amazing actress I was hoping for. Such a shame since she seemed really talented and completely charismatic. Anyway, coming back to this movie, I really like the way it dealt with sensuality and eroticism and the whole thing was just spellbinding to behold. To conclude, nowadays, it is a rather forgotten gem but it is actually definitely worth a look, especially if you are interested in Atom Egoyan's work.
