Better than i expected, great little Aussie movie.
1 July 2006 | by scary_poultrySee all my reviews

Despite the rather sleazy looking cover (on the Aussie edition a pair of big juicy lips on the front cover & the back has a nudie still), no doubt designed to grab people's attention at the video store, this movie is not all titillation as one might expect (although if you want some nudity, there's enough here to keep you watching). Once you get into the story it proves to be a tense psychological drama that leaves you waiting to see what happens at the end. Tells the story of Candy, a working girl in a brothel in Sydney's Kings Cross who falls in love with one of her clients, the mysterious Reg & the problems this creates for both of them.

For a 20 yr old film it holds up very well & doesn't seem to have that dated overly clichéd quality that many similar Aussie movies from the 80's have that kinda make us want to cringe. Performances by the two leads are very good & a shame both didn't go onto bigger & better careers. The only real problem i have with this movie is it didn't really explain the ending, its like there was a big build up then your left thinking 'why?' Perhaps this was intentional so as to make the viewer come to their own conclusions, or perhaps its lazy film making, i haven't made up my mind on that one. Anyway if you can get it on video or catch it on late night TV then def worth a viewing.
