It began as a purely sexual arrangement between anonymous strangers. Now, some time after it has ended, a woman and a man recall their unusual affair in separate interviews. She, single and unattached, placed an ad seeking a partner to join her in playing out a sexual fantasy she had long wanted to try. He saw the ad and responded. They differ on certain details he says they saw each other for six months, she believes it was three or four, but both speak fondly of their time together. Talking to

AN AFFAIR OF LOVE is that rare and much sought-after commodity, -- an adult love story presented with intelligence and craftsmanship.
A refreshingly mature look at sexuality: these are people over 30 enjoying active sex lives and able to intelligently examine their actions and the consequences.
wonderfully mature look at adult relationships
Committed performances and a teasing structure give weight to this minor enterprise.
Baye is left stranded, a performance too strong for a film this slight to contain.
If the film moved off its experimental mode and let us see the couple without the conditions the ground rules imposed on them, this might have been an even much better film.
It's a wonderfully touching film with a big and slightly bittersweet heart.
It's a modest film but rich with observation and unspoken regret, and the texture of their performances bring it to life.
Belgian director Frédéric Fonteyne's second feature is a short but ultimately tedious affair.
