i think it is great
13 August 2004 | by lester_otasiSee all my reviews

This is the first free-TV erotic-movie I ever saw and that's perhaps one of the reasons I still remember it. Another one is the female protagonists' stunning beauty, especially Eva Rozanyai is still on my mind when it comes to the most beautiful women ever to appear naked on screen.

The plot is well written, in contrast to most of the other films of this genre it really dedicates a lot of time to the characters' development; their yearnings, wishes and dreams are sensitively measured by an outstanding dialogue and so an attentive viewer with a basic knowledge about psychology won't be surprised, but nonetheless emotionally stirred by the ending, which uncovers Ljuba's deepest fears and her enormous courage and strength the same time.

There is also a nice allusion to the famous car-scene in "No Way Out" which has the chauffeur trying to observe Ljuba's love games in the car's back by using the mirror in the front. Overall I really recommend it!
