What some people think about this movie...

This movie has some great scenes but drags in some places.. You get caught up in their lives and you find yourself rooting for Cay Rivers the gorgeous lesbian with attitude to die for. If you love beautiful women and love a good story see this flick.. It is in my personal collection and i highly recomend it. **** Four star would have got five if more love scenes... does anyone speak french i think this is what they whisper during one scene... oh please help me on this..

Not a bad movie. Starts out a little slow. Good love scenes between Vivian and Cay.
