Audience Reviews for Passion in the Desert

  • Jan 07, 2009
    This wonderful movie raises some uncomfortable and ultimately fascinating questions about the possibility of a human falling in love with an animal...and it explores these questions gracefully and without sensationalism. The leopard should have won an award. She was just that good. Ben Daniels' acting with leopards only was amazing. This is a very underrated film.
