Bitter Moon (1992)

On a cruise heading for India, a young couple meet another, highly unconventional couple, an American unpublished writer in a wheelchair and his much younger Parisian wife, who insist on telling their unsettling life story.

Overlong and quite dated tale of a sadomasochistic amour fou that tries to go all the way, but risks some silly scenes as well.

Halliwell (no star): "Incoherent melodrama of the corruption of innocence; but we've aal been here too many times before for this treatment to carry any appeal."

Maltin**1/2: "Deliciously trashy tale...Often overwrought, with laughable dialogue and not-to-be-believed sex scenes. Aguilty pleasure to be sure."
