This unusual film looks at the issue of rape from the male point of view, in particular one man's nightmare of being unfairly accused of the crime and having no recourse against the accusations of a persuasive "victim." In this drama, a student finds herself locked in a museum after closing time with a man who has arranged for that to happen. He indicates his interest in having sexual relations with her, and she appears willing each of the times they have sex -- even to the point of complaining when he leaves prematurely. Afterwards, he is surprised to be hauled into court on a charge of "rape without force" and convicted. However, his is not the nightmare vision being considered -- the prosecutor who has won his case begins having nightmares, especially after his girlfriend takes the side of the man he prosecuted. Despite some oddities in the acting, this film won a Silver Bear at the 1991 Berlin Film Festival. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi
