    A haunting love affair which even men will take to. As the end approaches you are willing the couple to run off with each other and you are kept guessing all the way. Moody music between scenes adds to the mystique of this superb film. There are many a couple out there who have been in this situation and I suppose that is what makes you pay attention. Terrific, best love affair since Waterloo Bridge.
