ROMANCE

Synopsis:

A young woman's boyfriend no longer finds her sexually attractive. While she loves him and this hurts her deeply, she still has needs that must be satisfied. This results in dalliances with several people most importantly, her boss who happens to be the Principal of the school where she teaches. Willing to do everything but kiss them, (too personal) she seeks the emotional reassurance and tenderness which she's missing at home, in the arms of any man that will have her. Her heart still belongs to her boyfriend however; his lack of interest is killing her. Romance is the story of her pain and the attempts she goes to ease her suffering.

Audio/Video:

The audio is presented in a 2-channel stereo platform with no aural effects to speak of. Both a French and English language track are presented. The dialogue on both is clear and well defined. The widescreen transfer is beautifully rendered and free from transfer errors and any substantial chroma noise. Now that the technical is out of the way, here's the real skinny. This is a porno picture to be sure. With the French language track on, it's an artsy fartsy art house foreign film with psuedo-lofty notions about love, sex and life in general. With the English language track and some hokey music, it's porn, straight and simple. More on that later.

Extras:

The only extra is the original artwork for the feature, which is the nude form of a woman with her hand barely covering her pubic region.

Overall:

It's funny how the setting for a film can identify it as art or sludge for lack of a better term. The film is EXTREMELY graphic and shows everything you'd expect in a run-of-the-mill porno. When I mean they show everything, They show everything! The concept of the film is silly. If the man you love doesn't find you attractive anymore, go out and get another! There are plenty men available. This is one of those pushing-the-envelope films that really had no point whatsoever other than to titillate and excite while attempting to stay mainstream in it's target audience. I'm all for sexually charged films that say something but this one says…nothing. It's sort of Fatal Attraction with an even headier edge. A reviewer actually called this film"Genius"! Either he saw another movie, has extremely low expectations, or is a single and lonely guy! I am at a loss on how to identify this film. Let's just say, rent it if you're curious but I'm sure you saw this millions of times pubescently. Definately for the late-nite crowd. Rent it
