Ian Douglas: Seems we got to see a tamed-down version here in SA, compared to what the overseas reviews had to say. The film is not as graphic as the recent Romance, except for an opening scene involving a woman and a lollipop. In some ways the plotline is similar to the notorious Last Tango in Paris, without as much coupling.
