A sensual but unpersuasive lesbian love story from Patricia Rozema, director of the 1987 cult success I'VE HEARD THE MERMAIDS SINGING. The devout, apparently staid Camille (Pascale Bussieres), a theology professor at a Canadian college, is set to marry her straitlaced
colleague Martin (Henry Czerny). Their plans are disrupted by the arrival of Petra (Rachael Crawford), an exotic circus performer who seduces Camille both physically and spiritually. It's a visually attractive picture, but Bussieres is a frustratingly passive heroine: She spends most of the film
with lower lip atremble, looking lost and waiting for somebody to make up her mind for her.
