Beautifully shot (ah, my old friend, crane shots!) but facile take on domestic abuse, set in an arid middle class America where even the college drama teacher wears high-waisted chinos. If Patrick Bergen opened his eyes any wider they'd fall out.
BERGIN gets bored in his pretty house on the beach & consequently gives ROBERTS a beating. We get even more bored watching this film but - hard luck - we don't have ROBERTS at hand. ==== BERGIN s'emmerde dans sa belle maison sur la plage & du coup dérouille ROBERTS. Nous nous emmerdons encore + devant ce navet mais - pas de bol - on n'a pas ROBERTS sous la main.
