Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Michael Costello
John Duigan's gently playful erotic comedy on the transformative powers of sex manages to offer a measure of insight along with the sight of three surpassingly beautiful women scampering about naked. Hugh Grant stars as a young English clergyman who journeys to the rural abode of a notoriously controversial painter with orders to persuade him to remove one of his more blasphemous works from public exhibition. Yet, when the repressed cleric and his similar wife arrive, it's Sam Neill's painter and his trio of lover/models who prove far more effective at the art of persuasion. The film, which comes to focus on the young wife's gradual unfolding, is more interested in attitudes toward sex, and its relationship to character, than sex itself. Grant and Tara Fitzgerald as his prim wife are perfectly cast as a pair in need of stimulation, and Neill is surprisingly good in this prankish departure from the kind of serious roles he usually plays. Elle MacPherson also acquits herself well, although after watching her frolic mostly nude for two hours, the viewer's judgment may have been slightly compromised.

    Beautiful

    The best photography i've seen in a movie. With great references to the pré-raphaelites and classisism this movie is as irresistible as the chant of the sirens. Don't let the cover fool you... I tought I was in for a soft romantic comedy and found a brilliant movie thet went far beyond my expectations. Beautiful... a must see for the art lovers.

    Memorable film

    I saw this movie several years ago and it keeps coming back to mind. The clash of puritan values versus hedonistic, sensuous values adds to the eroticism of this film. It is a beautiful and sensuous film.
