When there's a will,there's a way??
4 January 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

To get the custody of her child,Clarence,Bridget would do anything.

The most interesting line of an uneven dialog is this strange lapsus when the woman speaks of her childREN.In her mind she's got two of them:the boy and her husband ,a retarded man she married because his father promised her a lot of dough if she would stay five years with the poor thing.Bridget has a racy past;a past which we know little by little as the flashbacks become more and more numerous.The plot often verges on melodrama and we often think of a Sirk/Stahl heroine lost in the Abel Ferrara world .It's difficult to side with any of the characters of the story,and as the precedent user said,it's very very difficult to like that.But by the same token,it's difficult not to be disturbed ,sometimes overwhelmed by this miserable heroine,these despicable but pitiful men .The trip to Beirut ,in this context,seems so irrelevant that it gains an almost uncanny atmosphere .

Worth a watch but be warned:not for all tastes.
