Critic Reviews for Chain of Desire

All Critics (5)

Stamina is rewarded in the film's own poignant promiscuity, ditching characters just as we get to know them, its dirty realism and its baleful emphasis on concupiscence over consummation.

December 6, 2017 | Full Review…

This timely update of Max Ophuls' 1950 classic La Ronde is sharply uneven, containing good, mediocre, and silly episodes about a variety of socio-sexual encounters in the AIDS era.
