A sweet romance
22 February 2004 | by djknelsonsSee all my reviews

This is a sweet romance about a liberated woman and a lion tamer. What? Yes. She runs a contest for a magazine to find the last romantic lover. But the magazine criteria are slightly different than the sweet man who she meets. He is a lion tamer at a poor circus, who is entered into the contest by the other members of the circus to get money to help the circus buy a new lion. He is sweet, and lives a simple, if exotic, life with the circus. He believes it is romantic to just sleep with a woman, not just to have sex with her. A happy ending makes this a cult favorite.
