A couple learns the dangers of a walk on the wild side in this erotic thriller. Alan and Wendy Barnet (Cameron Daddo and Brandy Ledford) have been married just long enough for the excitement to have gone out of their relationship, and they're looking for a way to put some spice back in their lives. After placing a personal ad looking for another couple interested in swapping mates, the Barnets are led to the Zebra Lounge, where they meet Jack and Louise Bauer (Stephen Baldwin and Kristy Swanson), a pair of seasoned erotic adventurers. While the Barnets find the swinging scene exciting at first, they soon decide it may be doing more harm than good to their marriage. But easing the Bauers out of their lives proves to be neither simple nor safe.

It is about child prostitution and this one is about female 'mules', meaning smuggling drugs by swallowing the drug pellets. There is a scene when the lead character accidentally allows two pellets to slip out of her body and she has to wash them clean before swallowing them back in. Another 'mule' has one of the pellets burst in her body and she eventually dies. Her body is brutally cut up and dumped away. I like the movie. It is made with noble intention of letting us know the extremes people from very poor countries can go to get a better life. The urge to earn more money, most of the times for the sake of their families, can even drive them to do something that insane. But do I really like it very much? Sadly no. I cannot really explain. The feminism touch and the feel-good ending. It is quite apparent that it is made with a wider audience appeal in mind. Maybe Hollywood tailor-made. Now compare this to Lilja 4-ever, I admire the latter's courage and angst. Rating: B+Expected Rating: B

An under-appreciated film . . . more assured and more fully realized than Anderson's landmark IF . . . . I'll have to see BRITTANIA HOSPITAL, Anderson's third collaboration with Malcolm McDowell.
