Storyline

In Topanga Canyon, in a beautiful but sparely appointed house, Jean Mackenzie feels like she's suffocating in her marriage to Paul, a tightly-wound architect. "I love you, it's us I don't like," she says to him as she embarks on an affair with Paul's opposite: a burly slacker named Viggo who lives in a trailer that has no bathroom. During the affair, she stays at Viggo's and continues to have contact with Phil. Where will his anger take him? Is Viggo, who's a good listener and an enthusiastic lover, more than a catalyst? Where will Jean's search for self - and for room to breathe - take her? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

...very beautiful stylish film, worth the time.
30 June 2004 | by Edward_OSee all my reviews

Besides the Hollywood star-power I found this very grown up story great to watch and amazingly true to a society that needs to accept the power of passion and love. A commitment to finding an inner truth in a women of the present day! Kelsey Oldershaw convinces and finds great company with Andy McKenzie and Horatio LeDon. The look of this movie is so perfect and the mood is so unpretentious as I did not see it in a long time since the best relationship dramas from France at their peak in the early 70- s. The whole environment is so very true to the contemporary situation in a troubled or maybe every relationship as questions and situations of truth and motivation come to a surface and find adults often unprepared. A very beautiful film that does still leave a lot of room to enjoy and listen and reflect into personal experiences.
