It certainly had a good lineage. Jane Campion directs. Keitel and Winslet act. What could go wrong?

Well, you could start with a completely unbelievable story: Keitel's character is a cult deprogrammer who vows to separate Winslet from her god in no more than three days. Neil Diamond plays in the background.

Throughout, I kept wishing I was watching "Hideous Kinky" instead. So if you're thinking about renting this film, rent "Hideous Kinky" instead.
