"Like most of the films I mentioned this captured the raw, true, emotion between a couple.
Especially for Cassevettes put his own wife in it is... another huge risk.
It's kind of like that crazy couples everybody knows, could be your next door neighbor, but you're not gonna tell anybody..."

"To me this is an amazing romantic film. Don't know if everybody would look at it that way, but to me it's very romantic and it's definitely a film dealing with escapism and that's wonderful. I mean anybody who doesn't escapism once in a while...
And there's one particular scene in the film where [lead acress] is laying on the beach and looks over at Jean-Paul's character and just says 'f**k me'.
For the time period you didn't expect to see that in this film and it's completely titilating and I know it turned me on. "

"It's such an interesting story. You're dealing with these characters in such a raw way. You have this young girl who wants to lose her virginity and it's really twisted and actually kind of messed up. In the end you don't really feel sorry for these characters and it's even more powerful that a woman directed it."
