Soft, sensual cinematography abounds in this erotic look back at a gypsy girl's coming of age. It is based on a popular novel penned by famed Hungarian novelist Peter Esterhazy using the pseudonym Lili Csokonai and represents 'Lili's" autobiography. In the film, Lili has lost her legs in a terrible accident. An extraordinary beauty, she spends a miserable wheelchair-bound life stranded in her apartment and forced to satisfy her husband's sexual whims. It is only through her diary that she finds comfort. Therein, she remembers her one great love, a dashing salesman who introduced the adolescent girl to all of life's sensual pleasures. Like a spoiled housecat, Lili comes to expect, demand that her lover Marton continue to satisfy her unending thirst for comfort, passion and love. When she discovers that he is engage to another she refuses to let go. Afterward she learns about another type of love with her beautiful lesbian neighbor. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi
