    Uh-oh... this steamy movie has gotten me in trouble with women in the past. But it's art right?
    Bottomline, it's a beautiful movie & I'm still getting it!

    I'm delighted to hear this news. It's one of those rare laserdiscs that I've kept. It is quite a film, and a real surprise to people who had no idea of its existence, its quality, or its eroticism (which, of course, is just a minor point to us film lovers).

    What is your source? Everyone kept saying that Two Girls and a Guy was going to be the unrated version and we got the R instead.

    I've always had mixed feelings about this movie, probably because I have mixed impressions about M. Duras's work. It is remarkably faithful to the book.

    Christiane F.
    A heartwarming German film about a teenage prostitute on heroin.
    Nice family entertainment.
